Sta. Rita Hills on Snooth

  • The Ojai Vineyard Fe Ciega Pinot Noir 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Translucent garnet color. Translucence correctly forecasts a relatively light-bodied red wine. Tart red cherry on the tip of the tongue, Some mineral hints farther back. I want to rave about this wine, but there is nothing that jumps out at me. It's just a pleasant, easy-to-drink, uncomplicated wine. Read More

  • The Ojai Vineyard Sans Soufre a Joute 2017

    Snoothrank:

    50/50 Grenache/Syrah blend. No added sulfies. Quite dark plum color in the glass. A surprising almost smoky nose. I anticipated lots of fruit on the tongue, and, sure enough--blackberry and stone fruit A bit of spritz around the edges of the tongue--probably acid. Medium bodied and refreshing--probably justifies another shout ou to the ac... Read More

  • The Ojai Vineyard John Sebastiano Vineyard Syrah Grenache 2016

    Snoothrank:

    An easy wine to enjoy. Stone fruit on entry, although I can also make a case for a suggestion of blueberry. Pleasant, and not over the top, acid. Fairly sedate tannin. Just a nice early drinker that will pair with lighter casual meals. Read More

  • Makes sense in that context re: Brewer Clifton. Sta Rita Hills is home to some surprisingly good Chardonnay (Liquid Farm opened my eyes to that a few years ago).  Read More

  • The Ojai Vineyard Fe Ciega Pinot Noir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    PnPed. Almost a prune color in the glass. Very funky nose which I would presume to be Sulphur and which I would further assume would blow off if I was more patient. Very pleasant introduction of strawberry and cherry. The next thing I notice is that this wine is slightly more tart than so many others. I am very OK with that, but some may ob... Read More

  • I find that typically the warmer the region the riper (and bigger/richer) the pinot. We were in Santa Barbara last December and then in Willamette Valley over the 4th and the general differences in their respective pinots are quite noticeable.  I'll 2nd the Hahn rec from RCKR. Adelaida has a Sta. Rita Hills pinot from the Doctors Vineyard and an... Read More

  • Lafond Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills Lafond Vineyard Clone 667 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky and red fruited on the nose with full cherry notes that have a hint of sweetness to them but do carry a toasted and lightly burnt note. Full on the palate with creamy red raspberry preserves and black cherry with some light leathery notes and a freshness to it. Tart with cranberry notes to the finish but in a nice way. Read More
