The Puerta Del Mar from Ojai is absolutely fantastic in 2015. It begins with a classic bouquet of black cherries, exotic spices, dried leaf, hot stone, cacao and violet which all come together beautiful . On the palate the fruit is vibrant and pure, with excellent precision and balance. This is an elegant red with a medium body supported by lovely acidity through the supple finish. While this is absolutely stunning today it will certainly benefit from a few years of bottle age and should continue to flourish over the next 10-12 years or more. Those looking for an old-world style of Pinot Noir out of California should certainly seek out this beauty.
