Belle Glos showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs produced from California's most noteworthy coastal wine-growing regions. While each vineyard location lies near the Pacific Ocean, the climate differences are significant, varying with the amount of fog, wind, sunlight, and soil type at each site.
The Clark and Telephone Vineyard lies just 13 miles from the ocean and is situated on a west-facing slope. The cool fog and coastal breezes make for later-ripening grapes with a delightful fruitiness, great acidity and underlying flavor nuances that contribute additional complexity. The result is dense, dark-berry fruit and abundant, sweet, baking-spice characteristics.
Bright ruby red with fresh, vibrant aromas of wild blackberry, raspberry jam and cedar box accented by rich floral notes. This wine is juicy and generous on the palate with sweet cherry, field-ripened strawberry, cranberry and just-baked gingerbread. Perfectly balanced with bright acidity and a supple mouthfeel. Fine grained tannins provide an authentic textural distinction and structural depth. Enjoy with roasts, veal chops, duck and game. (from the vintner)
