Winemaker Notes

The 2000, with fully ripe fruit and the same treatment as the 1999 vintage, is simply an amazing wine. It has an exotic aroma of peppery spices, bread, and cherry fruit, and the flavors are equally exotic. This wine has amazing concentration and length with great acidity and reasonably low alcohol. This, in Ojai's Vineyard opinion, is one of the best wines they have made. If finesse, power and complexity appeal to you, don’t miss this one.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

Earthy, loamy soil overtones mingle with licorice, black fruits, dried herbs, and olives in the deep ruby/purple-colored 2000 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard. Sweet and expansive with abundant spice characteristics, this is a soft, round, and delicious Syrah.

Ojai, , California
Adam Tolmach went to UC Davis and studied viticulture and enology, and after graduating in 1976 he settled down on the property his grandfather bought in the Ojai Valley in 1933 to farm sweet corn and melons, selling them at a roadside stand. After two years of this satisfying, yet difficult and nearly profitless work he sought employment in his field of study.
Adam had planted a vineyard in Ojai to Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc and had begun producing wine from that fruit in 1983. When the collaboration with Clendenen ended he concentrated all his attention on The Ojai Vineyard to further explore the infinite details of his craft.
Looking back over the last 25 years, one can see the development of The Ojai Vineyard came in three distinct phases. In the beginning it was lots of fun discovering the budding Santa Barbara County, experimenting with new plantings, new areas, and a wide selection of varietals; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and other Rhone varietals. Back in 1983 the vines were grown without much care in what was called a California sprawl. It took years to get growers to move towards progressive practices like drip irrigation and vertical trellising to improved wine grape quality.
