Both of them have made wines that have scored perfect 100 point ratings. They bought a 6 acre lot in the Diamond Mountain area, and the case production for their 1st and 2nd vintages is 400 cases or less. Robert Parker gave their 1st vintage, the 2004 vintage a rating of 96-98 points, and their 2005 vintage a rating of 95-97 points. What a great way to start off. Their wines look to have excellent cellaring life. Their maximum estimated case production, given their current vineyard of 6 acres is around 500-600 cases at best. This is less then half the production of Harlan and about the same as Screaming Eagle. On average, Levy \u0026amp; McClellans case production will be less then that of Screaming Eagle. As of right now, there is no waiting list to get into Levy \u0026amp; McClellan. But, I will say this right now, given the great history of these 2 great winemakers, it will not take long for their list to fill up and a very long waiting list to form.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-04T14:26:51-05:00","created_at":"2023-01-02T14:57:28-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_United States","LK0201","Other_Wine","Producer_Levy \u0026 McLellan","Region_Napa Valley","Source_Bestofwines1222","Type_Red Wine","varietal_cabernet sauvignon"],"price":79999,"price_min":79999,"price_max":79999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42660244619402,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2012 | Levy \u0026 McLellan | Ampersand","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":79999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/49_c0cb600f-d0a3-45a1-8fac-c279882b566c.png?v=1672689533"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/49_c0cb600f-d0a3-45a1-8fac-c279882b566c.png?v=1672689533","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2012 | Levy \u0026 McLellan | Ampersand at CaskCartel.com","id":23892274577546,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.387,"height":638,"width":247,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/49_c0cb600f-d0a3-45a1-8fac-c279882b566c.png?v=1672689533"},"aspect_ratio":0.387,"height":638,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/49_c0cb600f-d0a3-45a1-8fac-c279882b566c.png?v=1672689533","width":247}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2012 | Levy \u0026amp; McLellan | Ampersand\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe 2012 Ampersand is dark, voluptuous and juicy.
