Ampelos Cellars' 2006 'Lambda' Pinot Noir comes from the winery's estate vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills appellation of Santa Barbara County. Light garnet in color, this Pinot shows vivid black cherry aromas with hints of baking spice and faint oak. Bountiful red fruit flavors of cherries and raspberries dominate on the palate with underlying notes of cola, exotic spice, gingerbread and warm earthiness. Soft, smooth, and elegantly framed by fine tannins and a good grip of acidity, this Pinot was awarded 92 Points by Wine Spectator and 91 Points by Wine Enthusiast. It was given the name Lambda (a cosmological constant) because it will be produced each year and it reveals the magnitude of the vineyard. Both the Burghound and Steven Tanzer awarded the stunning Pinot 90 Points. Enjoy!
