From the beginning in 1983 The Ojai Vineyard wines have been made to age. We realize that this is a bit odd in a world where most wine is consumed within 6 hours of purchase, but there is something special about wines that age gracefully. A properly made wine that is carefully cellared takes on added nuance and complexity with time, and drinking a well aged wine is an experience that shouldn’t be missed!
The chart is a guide to the condition of each of our bottlings, but personal taste will determine when you might best enjoy our wines. For those that praise fruitiness and youth will want to drink them at what we call “early maturity”, and those that are looking for more earthiness and complexity might prefer them at “late maturity”.
