K&L Notes

Owner and winemaker Joseph Wagner named Belle Glos winery in honor of his grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner, who was a co-founder of Caymus Vineyards in Napa Valley. Wagner produces Pinots from all over California and the grapes for this particular wine come from the Dairyman vineyard in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Planted in 2000 to a mix of Dijon clones 116, 667 and 777, this vineyard obviously was once a dairy farm and pasture land. The vineyard sits on the southern alluvial plains of the Russian River Valley near the ocean, a region where cooling fog comes in through the Petaluma Gap in the morning and once again in the evening.

    Named for It's bucolic past, the Dairyman vineyard is located in one of the coolest regions of the Southern Russian River Valley, where sunny days and cool foggy nights and mornings allow fruit to ripen evenly and maintain acidity levels. The wine is full bodied and ripe, but incredibly complex and balanced. Ripe fruit aromas and flavors of black cherry and raspberry are tempered by earthy spice notes and mouthwatering acidity. This is a wine that will surely be appreciated by lovers of more generous styles of Pinot Noir.

    This is Belle Glos' take on Russian River, with fruit coming from the Dairyman vineyard, so called because of the old Dairy farm that used to be in this spot. The fruit from this distinctive vineyard is concentrated and powerful, making a full bodied yet very smooth Pinot loaded with luxurious black fruit that showcases the strength of Russian River. No need to wait for this wine to age! It's designed to drink now.

    If you have tried a Belle Glos wine in the past you know what to expect! A fruity and very fleshy, rich Pinot Noir that coats the mouth with hints of vanilla bean, coffee and jammy fruit flavors. It is a smooth and decadent Pinot Noir that can be opened and enjoyed. Very tasty stuff!
