The Ojai Vineyard 2018 Kessler-Haak Pinot Noir
2018 was our coolest and latest harvest yet at Kessler-Haak and this vineyard provided us outstanding fruit. The fragrance of this wine is powerful and stirring, with a real California thing going in its scents of bay laurel and flowering purple sage, along with berry medley and exotic spice aromatics. The palate is quite focused initaill, with brisk pruply red fruits channeled by stemmy tannins that evoke Earl Grey tea. With air it takes on more radiance along with suave and saline texture, and it carries with great length into a savory finish.
