2018 Ojai Vineyard Pinot Noir Puerta del Mar
Jeb Dunnuck 95
"One of the standouts, the 2018 Pinot Noir Puerta Del Mar Vineyard comes from a cool, westerly site and there are a tiny 273 cases produced. Gorgeous raspberry and strawberry fruits as well as loads of floral nuances define the bouquet and it's an incredibly perfumed, complex, yet pretty and nuanced Pinot Noir. With medium-bodied richness, flawless tannins, and an elegant texture, it's certainly not a blockbuster but just perfectly put together. It's going to benefit from a year or two of bottle age and cruise for a decade in cold cellars."
Adam Tolmach founded his own label, Ojai Vineyard in 1983, along with his wife Helen, but continued as a partner in Au Bon Climat until 1991. Tolmach’s initial vintage consisted of a small amount of Syrah produced at Au Bon Climat. The next year he built a winery in Oak View, near the town of Ojai in Ventura County on land that was left to him by his grandfather. All production has originated here since 1984. Pinot Noir was added to the lineup in the early 1990s, initially sourced from Bien Nacido Vineyard. Through the years, Ojai Vineyard has acquired a cult winery status do its small production and exclusivity. Most of the Ojai Vineyard wines are vineyard-designated originating from Tolmach’s long term relationships in which fruit is bought by the acre.
