2010 Ojai Vineyard "Solomon Hills Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1202968 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills is dazzling from the very first taste. Dark red cherries, plums, menthol, tar and licorice take shape in a towering, majestic Pinot that captivates all the senses. Hints of hard candy, crushed rocks and menthol are layered into the nuanced, perfumed finish. This stunning Pinot from Adam Tolmach and Fabien Castel is firing on all cylinders today. It has been fabulous on the two different occasions I tasted it. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Totally stunning, the 2010 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills has brilliant cut and definition, with vivid black cherry, earth and superb underlying minerality flowing to a medium-bodied incredibly pure Pinot Noir that has knockout class and poise. Showing solid concentration through the mid-palate, it should age gracefully through 2022. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep red. Dark berry and cherry aromas gain power with air, picking up notes of licorice and black cardamom. Sweet, concentrated black raspberry and anise flavors provide very good palate coverage and are braced by zesty minerals. Lively for the vintage, this Pinot finishes with very good clarity, youthfully firm tannic grip and excellent persistence. Tolmach suggests being patient with this wine.

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This possesses the most complex nose in the range with its exuberantly spicy and floral-suffused nose of dark berries, plum and anise nuances. There is a silky, round and seductive mouth feel to the solidly concentrated and extract-rich flavors that possess refined supporting tannins on the delicious, balanced and impressively persistent finish. This is presently on the fruit-forward side but I suspect that aspect will recede with a bit of bottle age as the underlying material is of real quality. Drink: 2018+ *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2013)
