Ripe plum and cherry pie aromas fold over onto the palate giving this a rich fleshy full-bodied mouthfeel. A dash of red and black licorice chimes in before this firms on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 760 cases... Ripe plum and cherry pie aromas fold over onto the palate giving this a rich fleshy full-bodied mouthfeel.

The nose offers layers of spicy cherry compote smoked cranberry and fresh herbs. Cherries and strawberries lead the way on the medium-bodied palate bolstered by notes of wet gravel and mineral on the finish. Fine tannins and a nice swing of acidity complete this balanced Sonoma Coast pinot.

Belle Glos

In 2001, Joe Wagner (whose family owns Caymus Vineyards) created Belle Glos, which focuses on vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs from throughout California’s best coastal wine-growing regions. He chose the name Belle Glos to honor his grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner. Lorna was a co-founder of Caymus Vineyards, an inspirational figure to Joseph and an avid lover of Pinot Noir.

Belle Glos showcases 3 distinctive single-vineyard Pinot Noirs from coastal locations: Dairyman (once an old dairy farm situated in the southern alluvial plains of the Russian River Valley), Clark & Telephone (located near the corner of Clark Avenue and Telephone Road in the Santa Maria Valley), and Las Alturas (located in one of the highest-plantable sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County).

In addition to these 3 annual releases, Belle Glos produces a limited offering of Pinot Noir from the Taylor Lane Vineyard (which is subject to sometimes ruthless fog and winds from the Pacific Ocean) and a dry rose wine, Oeil de Perdrix Pinot Noir Blanc.
