We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Owner/winemaker Joseph Wagner explains : 'Belle Glos showcases, under one label, the distinctive Pinot Noirs we produce from top growing areas in California. My family made Pinot Noir from Napa Valley grapes from 1972 until 1990.  Those were good wines, but they were not what we were looking for in Pinot Noir. So we began a search for cool, coastal locations more suited to growing this subtle, elegant grape

Deep ruby red in color with aromas of sun-warmed blackberries, ripe plums, with hints of black licorice. A complexity of dark berry fruits unfold on the palate; blackberries and bing cherries along with dark chocolate flavors. Vanilla and cedar oak undertones on the mid-palate further enhance the wine. The overall impression is rich with refined tannins, firm acidity and explosive layers of ripe fruit.
