Winemaker Notes

Deep scarlet color; out of the gate aromas of cinnamon, cranberry and a hint of ginger tease for a taste. The palate turns into Christmas in the mouth…sweet baking spices and tart berries, even a hint of roasted meat. Throughout the experience a plush weight fills the mouth. The merging of flavors, viscosity and a lively acidity round out the long, sinuous finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator

A rich, extracted style that’s dense but also very complex and detailed, with spicy berry flavors that fan out nicely while retaining their focus and detail, gaining depth on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2019.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Delicious from the get go, a Pinot Noir that impresses for sheer flamboyance. The vineyard is in a cooler part of the Santa Maria Valley, and the wine shows fine acidity and ripe, long hangtime flavors of raspberries and cherries, with a rich coating of oak and the exotic crushed spices of its terroir. So good now, it's hard to resist, but try cellaring for up to five years.

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.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
