The Ojai Vineyard Puerta del Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Member Review by EMark:

So much light is coming through the glass on this one—it’s almost closer to a rose than a red. A bit of a funky nose that blows off fairly quickly. Light red fruit on entry—strawberry, plum, raspberry. Amazingly sharp tartness. Some bitterness or minerality way in the back palate. An enjoyable, if not epic, wine.

The Ojai Vineyard, owned by Adam & Helen Tolmach, works closely with a dozen different vineyards on the Central Coast of California and produces wines from syrah, grenache, mourvedre, pinot noir, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and viognier. About 6000 cases are produced each year, divided between 15 bottlings, most of which are vineyard designated wines. The key to producing special wine is in the care taken growing the grapes. There is an inverse relationship between quantity and quality when it comes to grapes, so rather than purchasing ours by the ton, we have long term agreements with our growers to buy the fruit by the acre. This lets us culture the vines and thin the crop to our strict specifications, yet allows the grower to receive a fair return. In the winery we like to watch the development of the wine carefully, yet prefer to do as little as possible. Experience has shown us that the least amount of moving, pumping, fining and filtering is always best. The ultimate objective is to show off the distinctive character of a vineyard site. Read less

Lots of light showing through the red hue in the glass. Red berry on the nose—along with some orange blossoms and clove (?). Again, red berry fruit on the tip of the tongue. A suggestion of the clove or, maybe, cinnamon pops up mid-palate. A very light-bodied red wine. The saving grace for me is the nice acid. That moves it over to the “I like this wine” category.
