ampelos 2013 Pinot Noir, STA. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County, CA
Winemaker's notes: "This pinot has a wonderful youthfulness about it that develops into a voluptuous mouth feel with fine tannins . Has a fabulous deep dark garnet red and a brightness of fruit that makes you want to go back for more. The flavors are a rich blend of cherries, lush strawberries, dried cherry, white pepper and a hint of sweet tobacco … a glimpse of earthy musk and more cherries cap off the nose."
