Professional reviews:

Wine Advocate: “The 2017 Syrah Roll Ranch 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.” 95/100 pts

Vinous: “The 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.” 94/100 pts

Decanter: “Roll Ranch Vineyard is in the Ventura County AVA, just east of The Ojai Vineyard winery itself. This is a substantially warmer climate than that of Santa Barbara County and the Ojai team have adjusted their practices in both the vineyard and winery to combat this heat. Aromas of clay, paraffin and lavender introduce a blue-fruited and floral palate. Adam Tolmach and Fabien Castel have hit a stride in harnessing this warmer-climate fruit into a balanced showing of Southern California Syrah.” 93/100 pts

Jeb Dunnuck: “Based on Syrah blended with a splash of Viognier, the 2017 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.” 93/100 pts
