Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby red in color with satisfying aromas of boysenberry, dark cherry, and mulberry along with delicate hints of baking spices, dill, cola, nutmeg, and vanilla. On the palate, bold flavors of cranberry, ripe plum, cherry, and super-ripe strawberry are uplifted by gentle notes of cocoa powder and sweet fig for a generous and silky mouthfeel. This tremendously complex and broad-shouldered wine finishes with grace.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Belle Glos Dairyman Pinot Noir is an excellent bridge example of this grape variety. TASTING NOTES: This wine is smooth, easy, and delicious. Its aromas and flavors of candied berries combined with its soft textures should pair well with an oven-baked, pineapple-accented, and clove-studded ham shoulder. (Tasted: September 6, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast

Made in a thick and robust style, this hearty red is powerful and weighty in oak and tannin. Spicy seasonings of cinnamon and clove highlight rich, viscous flavors of dark cherry and berry, with rose aromatics up front and soothing.

Belle Glos showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs from California’s most noteworthy winegrowing 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 Designate is crafted to distill the purest essence of the locale into elegant expressions of California Pinot Noir.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
