Ojai 2017 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County
The 2017 Pinot Noir (Santa Barbara County) is a joyous wine. Orange peel, mint, tobacco, mint, sweet red berry and earthy notes give the 2017 its distinctive personality. Aromatic, beguiling and light on its feet, this is a terrific entry-level Pinot from Ojai.
“Pale ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir has a classically styled nose with aromas of cola, woodsmoke, black tea leaves, cranberry and Bing cherry plus undergrowth and earthy hints. The palate is light-bodied, silky and delicate with earthy character, soft tannins, juicy acidity and a long finish. This has nice purity and delicacy. 950 cases produced.” Robert Parker 90 Points
