Plush aromas of black cherry, baked strawberry, caramel and vanilla make for a rich, inviting nose. Theres a hearty texture to the palate, yet freshness remains intact, with a ripe boysenberry flavor thats accented by licorice and fennel pollen.-WS

The 2018 Belle Glos Pinot Noir Clark & Telephone is attractive and opulent on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine combines ripe fruit, a shade of smokiness, and candied notes in its aromas and flavors. Pair it with barbecue short ribs with a slightly sweet and savory sauce.

Fruity and rich-tasting, this is filled with concentrated dark plum, boysenberry and cherry compote flavors that are liberally spiced. Peppery hints emerge as well, leading to a finish that lingers with toasty notes. Drink now through 2024.-WS
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.-Winemakers Notes
Belle Glos showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs produced from top growing areas along the California coast: the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County; the Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County; and the Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County. The climate differences are significant, depending on the amount of fog, wind, sunlight and soil type at each site.
Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner is a fourth-generation winemaker from a family with farming and winemaking roots in the Napa Valley since 1906. The name Belle Glos (pronounced BELL GLOSS), honors Josephs grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner, a co-founder of Caymus Vineyards.-Winery Notes
