Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2005 Pinot Noir Las Alturas Vineyard possesses a broad texture, deep, sweet fruit, forest floor, black raspberry, cherry, and currant aromas, and beautiful purity as well as seamlessness. All three of these Pinots are best consumed during their first 3-4 years of life." - Wine Advocate

About Belle Glos:

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.
