Kudos to Ojai

After drinking many vintages of their Syrah and even a Pinot or two, I tried this Chardonnay from them. Really, really impressed. Not like white Burgundy but so different than most Cali chards. Great effort.

The Atypical Typical Cali Chardonnay

Green apple and lemon nose. Body full, yet very light glycerin weight. In mouth, exhibits more green apple, but with white pear and cantaloupe, very faint yogurt note, bit of Mediterranean brine at back of palate. Finish was short, light wafting of whipped butter. This one was preferable on body to the Bien Nacido, but was not as complex or aromatic as Tolmach's fellow Chard. This, to me, was more of a typical Cali Chard, but nothing like the full blown apple and butter creations from NorCal.

Great summer sipper

Not an overwhelming fruit bomb but still juicy and delicious. restrained and classy. Drank this one on my last picnic and it paired beautifully with some Vermont White Cheddar. will definitely be ordering more.

Clos Pepe vs. Cakebread?

Ojai gets my vote.


apple, lemon, pear, clean notes, not overly dry, nice finish

Changing my mind...

about Chardonnay. This was wonderful. I have been stuck on Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc. Could make me a convert.

little too acidic, not smooth
