2004 Ambullneo "Canis Major" California Pinot Noir

SKU #1019192 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red. Subtle, somewhat reduced aromas of raspberry, smoke, chocolate and pepper. Supple, silky and sweet, with superripe flavors of dark raspberry and sassafras. Rich and concentrated. The most stylish-and least extractive-of these 2004s, finishing with broad, fine tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2006)

K&L Notes

Very limited and fearless by design, this important blend reaches for the stars (or Dogstar, if you read the night sky) by melding the north (Carneros) with the south (Santa Maria Valley). In this further attempt to make great wine, the guys behind this upstart label set out to reveal and add flavors by carefully selecting six barrels from each region, then blending for harmony and structure. They did not simply pick the best barrels, but instead applied a meticulous process for singling out barrels that will illuminate each other in a dazzling constellation. There is no right or wrong formula for making great wine, one only needs to make great calls. This wine demonstrates what they like to think is the art of decision-making.
