Winemaker's Notes:

Lambda has a fabulous deep dark garnet red color, brimming with aromas of sweet Indian spices and cherry cola and demonstrates a truly elegant burgundian nose. The flavors are packed with rich dark cherries, spices and earth giving way to a smooth finish that lingers on forever.
My Notes:

About Ampelos Cellars:

Ampelos is a Greek word meaning "vine". We believe that all great wines are made in the vineyard, we also have strong ties to Greece, so “ampelos” truly represents our focus.

We believe in taking care of and respecting the environment and that our vineyard needs to be in balance, therefore a few years ago we made the decision to go 100% bio-dynamic. This means we are essentially organic - yet a step beyond. In 2008, we were one of the first vineyards to be certified as Sustainably Farmed, a milestone of which we are particularly proud.
