Winemaker Notes

Complex dark berry and rose petal nose with classic spice box, hints of mineral and pleasing earthy nuances. The palate isfilled with rich and plush concentrated flavors of red and blackberry fruits combined with distinct baking spice and daring black pepper.Playful acidity adds structure and a finish that is memorable. Classic Clos!

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Like the 2011, the 2012 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe is loaded with spice and potpourri-like nuances that flow to a gorgeously rich, seamless palate that has sweet tannin and impressive length. It, too, should be a great 2012 and have a decade of longevity. Drink 2015-2022.
Range: 92-94
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Reverberates with firm, dense, fleshy flavors, built around blueberry, blackberry, anise, violet and black licorice notes. Tight tannins give the flavors traction and a persistent finish. Drink now through 2023.

A.P. Vin, California
A.P. VIN was established in 2003 to fulfill the dream of its owner, Andrew P. Vingiello. After taking his first sip of artisinal California pinot noir he set out to learn as much as he could about this unique style of bold, complex wine. In 2003 Andrew worked his first wine harvest and found that his passion for handcrafted wine extended beyond just consuming it. Andrew created the very first vintage of A.P. VIN in 2003 from Garys' Vineyard. While only 150 cases were produced, it was enough to win the acclain of well-known publications. The name A.P. VIN orginiates from Andrew's name (Andrew P. Vingiello) and the logo represents his signature on each bottle produced.

While managing to keep his day job during production of the first few vintages of A.P. VIN, it was in 2005 that Andrew decided to fully dedicate himself and his career to his passion for creating unique wines. Shortly thereafter, Andrew moved his production and winemaking from Lompoc to San Francisco, where he could tend to the wines closer to his home.

Today, A.P. VIN produces approximately 2,000 cases of vineyard-designate pinot noir and is focused on making wines of the highest quality, which Andrew believes starts in the vineyard. From the vineyard and row locations to the farming style of each grower, every element adds nuances and subtleties that result in a superior wine.

Sta. Rita Hills Wine

Santa Barbara, California

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.
