Description

[2014] A powerful, meaty wine, the 2014 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard packs a real punch. Hints of lavender, plum, herbs and leather emerge, but only with considerable reluctance. Readers will have to be especially patient with this structured, tannic young Syrah, but there is quite a bit to look forward to. The 2014 was done with 15% whole clusters.

Score: 94 points -- Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 2017

[2016] In this range, the 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard is racy, polished and sensual. Floral top notes add brightness to a core of sweet red/purplish berry fruit. But the Bien Nacido Syrah is ultimately a wine of textural silkiness, nuance and finesse. All the elements are wonderfully fused together.

Score: 93 points -- Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 2019

The Ojai Vineyard began in 1983 with the dream of producing distinctive California wines using traditional wine making practices learned in Burgundy and the Rhone valley. Thirty seven years later, owners Adam and Helen Tolmach, continue to pursue the craft at his artisanal winery in Ojai, California, purchasing grapes from the series of amazing vineyards throughout Santa Barbara county. Adam's quest to bring together European sensibilities of balance and finesse with the exuberant fruit from coastal California vineyards is expressed in the wines he makes today. 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 theirs by the ton, Adam has long term agreements with growers to buy the fruit by the acre. This lets him culture the vines and thin the crop to his strict specifications, yet allows the grower to receive a fair return. In the winery Adam prefers to watch the development of the wine carefully, while doing as little as possible to them. Experience has shown 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.
