Belle Glos Winery produces distinctive Pinot Noirs from several California coastal wine growing regions. Owner/winemaker Joe Wagner chose the name Belle Glos to honor his grandmother - Lorna Belle Glos Wagner - who was a co-founder of Caymus Vineyard. This 2016 Pinot Noir is definitely a fitting tribute.

Deep scarlet in color with aromas of blackberry, the wine is bright, fresh, and exuberant, with ripe black cherry flavors, as well as a hint of strawberry. This is definitely a wine to accompany a wide variety of food - it is perfectly balanced, with a nice touch of acidity and soft velvety tannins. Biba and I recently enjoyed the Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir with dinner on two separate occasions - once with Petrale Sole and once with Cotolette alla Milanese. It was great on both occasions.

For the entire month of April 2018 we are offering the 2016 Belle Glos from Clark & Telephone vineyards in Santa Maria Valley at the reduced price of $50 per 750 ml bottle and $12.50 per glass. I’m sure you will love this wine.
