Ojai Syrah Roll Ranch Vineyard 2006


Ripe red and black cherry with boysenberry plus complex flavors of cigar box, bay, pepper, citrus pith and a touch of smoke. Medium to full bodied, wonderfully restrained, delivering a wine with richness and balance. Well integrated, with fruit and savory elements intertwined as indistinguishable. Like a couple married many years who cannot help but take on each other’s affectations. But this is good. A very good, near excellent, wine. (Reviewed 10/7/12)

  1. Excellent review. In addition to the wonderful taste experience you describe, Ojai reds are vegan friendly (neither fish-based isinglass nor ichtyocolle is used for clarification purposes).
