The Ojai Vineyard 2018 Puerta del Mar Pinot Noir
And like much of Burgundy, this 2018 Pinot Noir is subtle, enticing, and shows a powerful translucent crimson in the glass. The power of fragrance is consuming, with ethereal scents of flowers, strawberries, black tea and chapparal herbs. It glides onto the palate with a supple profile of red stone fruits and rallies some nerve as it segues into racier notes of berries. The wine then fans out into a suave and saline texture dotted with notes of spice, soil and woodsiness—just elegant and stirring as can be.
