My favorite Belle Glos offering. Comes with a lot of power. Willamette seekers beware. Baking spice, leather, cherry cola. Can take age. Love.

We had the 2016 Vintage on 6/12-13/21. Like other Belle Glos Wines, this is darker in color and taste compared to other wines from the respective regions. Medium purple in color. The palate had blackberry, plum, cinnamon and some vanilla. Smooth finish, still medium bodied. There are just too many better options. Still worth drinking.

Smooth Pinot, not as complex and more reserved than those from Willamette. Still a very sippable bottle.
