Ampelos Pinot Noir Lambda United States California Santa Barbara Sta. Rita Hills 2008

Member Review by dynowine:

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
