Winemaker Notes

The anticipation - palpable, the attraction - undeniable, the return - inevitable. This "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 and a smoothly 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!

Blend: 100% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
A pure 100% Syrah that’s got an elegant sense of restraint. Bright and compelling, the fruit surrounds classically delicious layers of black pepper and charcuterie, soft tannins and a vibrant personality that calls out for pairing with cured meats and sophisticated cheeses.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Dense and appealingly racy, with floral blueberry and violet aromas, featuring layered flavors of raspberry, pepper and grilled herb. Tannins sneak in on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

Ampelos Cellars, California
Ampelos Cellars Aerial View of the Vineyard Winery Image
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.

Sta. Rita Hills Wine

Santa Barbara, California

View all products

A superior source of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills is the coolest, westernmost sub-region of the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation within Santa Barbara County. This relatively new AVA is unquestionably one to keep an eye on.

The climate of Sta. Rita Hills is a natural match for Chardonnay and Pinot noir, thanks to the crisp ocean breezes and well-drained, limestone-rich calcareous soil. Here, grapes ripen just enough, while retaining brisk acidity and harmonious balance.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
