OJAI 2010 SYRAH "ROLL RANCH" CALIFORNIA 750mL

ANTONIO GALLONI 95 POINTS - "My tasting this year at Ojai was epic. Winemaker/Proprietor Adam Tolmach and Assistant Winemaker Fabien Castel have done a fabulous job with these new and upcoming releases. The highlights are centered among the Pinots and Syrahs. Black fruit, scorched earth, smoke, tobacco and iron burst from the glass in the 2010 Syrah Roll Ranch Vineyard. A rich, explosive Syrah, the Roll Ranch is not for the timid. The sheer power and intensity of the fruit take hold of all the senses and never let up. This is the only Ojai Syrah that is co-fermented with a dollop of Viognier, which is felt in the wine's perfumed, floral-laced finish. This is yet another gorgeous new release from Ojai. Drinking window: 2014 - 2024"

Owner and winemaker Adam Tolmach learned a few tricks while he was in Burgundy and the Rhône Valley. For the last three decades, he has been improving upon these techniques here in California, and his wines are among the favorites for sommeliers, critics, consumers and us here at Hi-Time! His style for Syrah is to focus on grapes from the finest terroirs in the coolest districts in northern Santa Barbara County. They have charming personalities with good quantities of spice and mineral-laced fruit, similar to what you might find from France. This wines comes from the Roll Ranch Vineyard, a vineyard so close to his home that this always seems to get the most “love and attention.” Maybe that’s why this wine scores so high! Wine critic Antonio Galloni stopped in on Adam earlier this year, and said his tasting was “...epic”! “Black fruit, scorched earth, smoke, tobacco and iron burst from the glass in the 2010 Syrah Roll Ranch Vineyard.
