Ambullneo Vineyards

Ambullneo Vineyards Ambullneo Vineyards uses that definition as its core philosophy - that is, to blend and not be site specific. Not being at the mercy of single vineyards enhances the quality of every vintage. Yes, great vineyards can make great wines. But adeptly blending several great vineyards creates unique wines of exceptional character. What if Burgundy could blend La Tache, Musigny and Chambertin? Just imagine the results.

  Big Paw Chardonnay
Expect intense flavors of orange blossoms, mango and peach, buoyed by flint and wet stone with a soft, haunting finish. With slightly lower pH's than previous vintages the 2006's boast a litheness that is utterly appealing.
  Blanc Fang Chardonnay
This is our youngest pup in the kennel—now selling for its second outing. Once again, it integrates a small amount of new oak (around 10%) and barrel fermentation to mold another singular chardonnay of robust character.
  Howling Syrah
Again a blend of fruit from the famed Bien Nacido Z Block and Rimrock Vineyard, we were thrilled to make the most of this exquisite vintage. Hang times were extended, clusters were perfect and pH levels were ideal. The decision to increase whole cluster fermentation to 30% (from 20%) proved wise, further gleaning luscious syrah flavors. In the glass, the nose gets a floral lift from the addition of 2% viognier while characteristic aromas of violets, blueberries and blackberries leap forward. Firm, yet ripe tannins burst to expose a delicious middle of classic black fruit, white pepper, cacao with hints of cherry candy and blueberry pie. Beautiful acidity only boosts the depth and appeal of this cool climate tour de force.
  Rancho Ontiveros Vineyard Pinot Noir
es, we are known as a cuvee house, so this release is rare indeed. We are making this exception for two reasons. One, Rancho Ontiveros Vineyard fruit is extraordinary, highly sought-after and costly (though deservedly so). Two, acquiring pinot from this amazing Santa Maria Valley site requires that we designate bottles that feature the vineyard
  Solomon Hills Vineyard Chardonnay
Only four extraordinary barrels chosen by Greg Linn make up this very limited offering. Now in small cooperage from Troncais Damy, this lovely juice is now beautifully integrating the finely grained new oak that was air-dried for three years, then toasted. This champion is our translation of Leflaive – but with a California accent. Fat and lush while young, we expect bottle age will melt the nutty notes of toasted new oak into opulent richness braced by focused acidity.
