96 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: “The 2013 Ampersand is a serious second wine that could use a bit more time to come into its own. Today, the 2013 naturally shows less of the immediacy and radiance of the 2012 tasted alongside it. Dark stone fruits, leather, menthol and tobacco gradually open up in this super expressive wine from Levy & McClellan.”
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.
