    Product Description

    Belle Glos showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs from California's most noteworthy coastal wine-growing regions. While each vineyard location lies near the Pacific Ocean, the climate differences are significant, varying with the amount of fog, wind, sunlight, and soil type at each site. Each vineyard-designated wine is crafted to distill the purest essence of the locale into elegant expressions of California Pinot Noir.

    Belle Glos Dairyman Pinot Noir is a premium wine crafted by renowned winemaker Joe Wagner, sourced from the coveted Dairyman vineyard in the Russian River Valley on the Sonoma Coast. It is well suited to producing a wine in the signature style. Belle Glos's commitment to quality is evident in every bottle, from the carefully handpicked and sorted grapes to the small-lot fermentation in a combination of closed and open-top stainless steel fermenters; they used both punch-downs and pump-overs to extract color and tannins and also to control temperatures and maximize flavors. They aged the wine in 100% French oak (60% new) for up to nine months. After the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, they racked it twice before making the final blend.

    Belle Glos Dairyman Pinot Noir is deep garnet in color with abundant aromas of sun-warmed black cherry, raspberry compote, and dark chocolate, followed by hints of cedar and black currant. Bold and rich tones layered with flavors of fresh strawberry cobbler and bramble accompanied by notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. This wine has rich tannins, excellent concentration, depth, and natural acidity that express the authenticity of Sonoma County Pinot Noir.
