Bright crimson red in colour. Aromas of black cherry and ripe plums combine with subtle notes of dried herbs and smoke.
The palate entry shows flavours of cranberry, fresh raspberry, and ripe cherry, complemented by hints of vanilla and baking spice. A balance of savoury, cedar and cocoa powder, and sweet, fig jam and ripe blackberry, round out the mouth-feel. The overall impression is one of ripe red and black berry fruit flavours, great structure, smooth tannins and a lingering fresh finish.

Wine Profile

other 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 Joseph’s grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner, a co-founder of Caymus Vineyards.

vineyard notes

The grapes for this red wine enjoyed a prime 2014 growing season in California. Consistently warm temperatures led to an early harvest, and the drought produced a low (and flavorful) crop yield.
