OTH 91 points - Opaque ruby. Powerful, spice-accented aromas of blackberry, violet and licorice, plus a smoky mineral note; very syrah. Sweet and lush on entry, then spicy and firm in the mid-palate, offering black and blue fruit flavors with complicating floral pastille and allspice qualities. At once ripe and fresh, finishing juicy and impressively long, with notes of candied flowers and minerals.  (Nov15 2012)

The anticipation - palpable, the attraction - undeniable, the return - inevitable. Our ”black beauty” is back drawing you in with her velvety deep hues, granite minerality and the perfect harmony of a lady wise beyond her years. With a nose of cherry cola, palate pleasing hints of chocolate and cracked pepper along with a smooth balanced acidity; she gallops with intensity from start to finish. A cool climate maven, she showcases the complexity of her terroir to the envy of those who race against her. She is a winner!
Producer
Ampelos is a Californian vineyard (located in the Sta. Rita Hills) with a Greek name meaning ”vine”. The Greek name stems from our ties to Greece -- we were married in Greece and own a small hotel there. Ampelos truly represents our focus which is a shared belief by my wife and I that all great wines are made in the vineyard. Good grapes produce great wine. Peter Work
