Ampelos Pinot Noir, Santa Rita Hills 2013

One of my favorite California producers for many years, Ampelos is about as “green” as they come, which puts them in the upper echelon of quality wines and a quiet gem to be sought out. The grapes were hand harvested and allowed to start a natural fermentation. The wine is unfined, unfiltered and 100% Pinot Noir. Flavors of dark cherries and raspberry sing into a rich cola and brown molasses core. Notes of wild red berries meld with medium acids and minimal tannins. The finish offers hints of Asian spice and Moreno cherries with a touch of butterscotch and vanilla from French oak aging. Definitely a rock solid wine!
