2012 Levy & McClellan 'Ampersand' Proprietary Red Napa Valley
The "Ampersand" wine is a knockout, expressive and loaded with notes of graphite and cassis, a wine that Galloni gushes about and calls "dark, voluptuous and juicy. Raspberry jam, spice, new leather and rose petal flesh out effortlessly. Super-classy, polished and refined, the 2012 is a great example of the vintage. The bold, dramatic style will appeal most to readers who appreciate opulent, racy Cabernets. Quite frankly, the 2012 is a more complete and striking wine than many top labels."
Between the two of them, husband and wife Bob Levy and Martha McClellan have some of the most impressive resumes and track records in the entire Napa Valley. Bob is of course the Director of Winemaking at Harlan Estate, Bond, and Promontory, and cut his teeth with long stints at Rombauer and Merryvale. Martha trained at the esteemed Geisenheim University in Germany, and also honed her craft at Harlan Estate, Sloan, and Vineyard 7 & 8, and Checkerboard.
Bob and Martha's own project, Levy & McClellan, north of Diamond Mountain on the way to Knights Valley, is incredibly rare and collectible. They were kind enough to share with us a nice allocation of their two reds from their home vineyard, whose total production is less than 600 cases.About Levy & McClellan
