Winemaker Notes

Showing some of the characteristics of maceration carbonique from the whole cluster fermentation (exuberantly fruitiness), and the delicious mouth-coating tannins from the stems, along with the distinct freshness from the Clos Pepe/Kessler Haak location, this wine is stunning. And as eye-grabbing as it is today it will age into a fabulously complex beauty during the next 10 to 15 years.

A pretty amazing effort, the 2015 Ojai Kessler Haak Pinot Noir starts out with a tremendously grapey aroma before settling in on the palate with a firm body and enticing strawberry and dried leaves in the flavors. Pair this wine with a rosemary-infused leg of lamb. (Tasted: May 11, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
V 92
Vinous
The 2015 Pinot Noir Kessler Haak Vineyard is one of the most exuberant wines in this range. A rush of dark red and purplish-hued stone fruits, flowers, spices and new leather makes a strong opening statement. This is an especially exotic, flamboyant, dense wine. The 50% whole clusters are felt in the 2015's aromatic intensity, while the decision to vinify only with pumpovers seems to have brought out considerable fruit intensity.

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.

A superior source of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills is the coolest, westernmost sub-region of the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation within Santa Barbara County. This relatively new AVA is unquestionably one to keep an eye on.

The climate of Sta. Rita Hills is a natural match for Chardonnay and Pinot noir, thanks to the crisp ocean breezes and well-drained, limestone-rich calcareous soil. Here, grapes ripen just enough, while retaining brisk acidity and harmonious balance.
