Belle Glos

Clark & Telephone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021

Crafted by Joseph J. Wagner, 4th generation winemaker, with winemaking roots in the Napa Valley since 1906. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas, tea and sweet spice notes. On the palate flavors of jammy blackberry and cherry with pronounced sweet vanilla oak, cacao and pepper spice notes. Soft tannins and bright acidity, well balanced, with mineral tones on a long finish ending with toasty spice! Nice! — 17 days ago

Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2022

Closer to the Reds I'm currently liking right now (Pommard), but perhaps more on the over-ripe side, especially after it's been opened for a day. It's definitely jammy strawberries, with some dark ripe plums, acidity (location and soils - shale, limestone and sandy loam), dance-ability and fun on the palate right after opening. More cherry and oak notes after 24 hours but overall something that goes really well with food (heirloom tomatoes and burrata, white and pink pasta sauces). When I saw Santa Maria Valley I knew I'd like this wine and I would definitely buy this again! — a month ago


Bien Nacido Hillside Estate Syrah 2016

2016 vintage. Last tasted 1.14.24 (9.4). Ripped through the last two bottles. Medium/medium-heavy body. Still plenty of meaty/gamey qualities afoot but undergoing potty training and getting domesticated. Just starting to get cultured and “pretty.” 4.12.24. — 2 months ago
