Great interplay of weighty black/blue fruit and savory Syrah undertones; sage, olive, menthol, crushed violet. The wine has freshness and life as well, a total bang for the buck that fits right in at the table.

Beautiful red fruits and herbs, Rhône like. But slight thin and lean on the palate.

My first Ojai wine and I’m a big fan. Laced with black pepper and lavender classic of Syrah. Lean body but not flimsy or tart.

Blood, stone, wax. Unripe dark fruit. Green edge and slight natural funk.

Perfect, in a way. No pyrazene, no stewed prunes. Pointed acidity, superb structure, great length, although closed. Expect greatness in a few years.
