Initially this wine starts off much too big and burly for Pinot Noir. However a few hours in the decanter tames some of its overt aggressiveness. It is a deep blood red color with a powerful nose of stewed tomato, smoky oak, and decaying cherry with a bit of mineral, vanilla, and leather overtones. Smooth and rich with plush flavors that are the same as the wine?s aromas. Acidity is adequate. A short to medium length finish. The pricing of this wine is more than a little off putting ? it is priced the same as Marcassin Blue Slide Pinot Noir. Fruit was sourced from the Solomon Hills Vineyard (80%), the Laetitia Vineyard, and the Dierburg Vineyard (10% from each).

About This Producer


Greg Linn strives to make the very best Pinot, Chardonnay, and Syrah possible at Ambullneo Vineyards, where the motto is "whatever it takes." No cluster is safe from being dropped to the ground, both in the vineyard and on the sorting table, and no barrel is safe from being rejected and never making it to the final product.

As Linn's source vineyards have more age, Ambullneo now produces vineyard specific wines as well as cuvees.
