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.

Pale to medium ruby, the 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. (EB)
The lightly hued 2017 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard is also medium-bodied and tight, with pretty notes of bright cherries, forest floor, smoke, and violets. It has good acidity and is need of 3-4 years of bottle age. 91+
