WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, September 2013
Dark in hue, rich and dense, this offers a potent mix of berry pie flavors that are lively, complex and well-oaked. Quite harmonious, with the fruit and creamy wood scents in sync. Drink now through 2022. – JL

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.
