Ojai's Roll Ranch is always one of our favorite Syrahs in California - big, fruity and complex.  Highly Recommended.

95 Points Robert Parker:
"The Ojai 2017 Syrah Roll Ranch Syrah has singular aromas of blueberry, boysenberry, violet, cocoa and coffee laced with exotic spices. The medium to full-bodied palate is bright, fresh and lifted with spicy fruit, a grainy, fresh frame and very long, perfumed finish. 332 cases were made."

94 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous):
"The Ojai 2017 Syrah Roll Ranch is the most complete of the four 2017 Syrahs I tasted. The deeply-pitched aromatics are immediately captivating. There's plenty of depth to match, too. Dark red cherry fruit, cedar, leather, tobacco, menthol and dried flower all meld together in a Syrah that has it all: perfume, fruit and structure to burn. The 75-85% whole clusters (the most of the Ojai Syrahs) work beautifully here, as does a dollop of Viognier. This is such a classy wine."

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on Syrah blended with a splash of Viognier, the 2017 Ojai Syrah Roll Ranch Vineyard has more red and blue fruits as well as some stemmy, violet, and peppery nuances, medium body, a terrific sense of elegance and purity, light tannins, and a great finish. It's another elegant, layered, just straight-up pretty wine from this estate that's a joy to drink. It's going to evolve for 10-15 years with no issues...I continue to love the wines from Adam Tolmach and Fabien Castel. These lean firmly toward the fresher, elegant end of the spectrum, yet I always find the wines to have wonderful depth of fruit, terrific balance, and singular characters."
