Ampelos Pinot Noir Lambda United States California Santa Barbara Sta. Rita Hills 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes This wine is bursting with rich cherry notes and the underlying flavor of cola, this pinot shows us what one more year of growth can do for vines. The nose offers a hint of milk chocolate and blueberries. Enjoy this wine with your summer cuisine from salads to quiche and especially barbeque.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

A powerful pinot. Last I heard its fruit is biodynamically grown. Strong acid balances strong sour ripe tasty pinot fruit and cola and spice. Some leather and wood notes in the background. Lingering finish. Excellent effort. Body medium, acid medium or higher, tannin medium minus. Somewhat indistinct nose therefore a point or two off the pro's score.

Aromas and flavors of loamy earth, blueberry and wild berry are tight, focused and concentrated, gaining depth and richness. Ends tightly wound in a good way. Better than previously reviewed. Best from 2010 through 2015. 1,059 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2006 Ampelos Cellars Lambda Pinot Noir 750ml
