New release of Ojai's fantastic Bien Nacido Pinot Noir. Limited. 93 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Ojai’s 2017 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard is a pretty, gracious wine that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Dried rose petal, sweet red cherry and mint are all beautifully lifted in this very pretty and expressive Pinot Noir. The 2017 is exotic, beguiling and loaded with character. Half of the fruit is from Martini clone vines planted in 1973, while the other half is sourced from the more modern, interplanted rows of Clone 777 Pinot, all in Block Q, which lies at the eastern end of this large, sprawling ranch. 92 Points Robert Parker: "Pale to medium ruby, the Ojai 2017 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard opens with savory aromas of charcuterie, tree bark and underbrush with pomegranate, cranberry, Earl Grey tea leaves and a spicy vein. The light to medium bodied-palate is quietly intense, with delicate, pure fruit flavors supported by soft, grainy tannins and integrated freshness, finishing long and earthy. 628 cases produced." ...This is a fabulous set of wines from Ojai. Winemaker/Proprietor Adam Tolmach and Assistant Winemaker Fabien Castel hit the ball out of the park with a number of these new releases. Frankly, I am not sure where to start, as there are so many wines here that are worthy of serious consideration... As a consumer, sometimes it feels there are no great values left in California. Ojai is a rare exception. These wines deliver the goods (and then some) yet remain exceptionally fairly priced."
