Ampelos Cellars Lambda Pinot Noir 2007
Vivid red. Sexy, pure aromas of red berries, Moroccan spices and musky herbs. Silky, spicy and concentrated, with an enticing sweetness to its strawberry and raspberry flavors. This expressive wine really stains the palate with sappy red fruit and spice qualities. The long finish features a touch of bitter blood orange.
A moderately deeply pitched nose of dark berries, black cherry and blue fruit hints leads to rich, concentrated and attractively textured flavors as there is an ample amount of dry extract that buffers the firm tannins on the mildly austere and dusty finish. I like the sense of restraint and underlying complexity and this should reward 3 to 5 years of cellar time, perhaps a bit more. Worth considering. 90/2014+
