Natalie's Score: 90/100

Always lush and juicy with dark cherry, dried red berry, chocolate and smooth vanilla flavours on the palate, this Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is produced from wine grapes grown on the alluvial soils there. Heavy fog rolls in over the coastal range and burns off when the sun reaches its highest point in the day. This cooling morning effect and the loamy soils allows the Dijon clone of Pinot Noir in this wine to ripen slowly to full maturity. The vineyard was grown was once a dairy farm and pasture.

Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled chicken, roast pheasant, stuffed roast of veal breast.

Reviews and Ratings

From the Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California Belle Glos Dairyman Vineyard 201 Pinot Noir is rich and smooth with dark cherry, dark chocolate, sweet spice and vanilla flavours on the palate. The Pinot Noir wine grapes are grown on the alluvial soils of the Russian River Valley. Heavy fog rolls in over the coastal range and burns off when the sun reaches its highest point in the day. This cooling morning effect, loamy soils and the mix of Dijon clones 116, 667 and 777 on low vigor rootstock all contribute to this sensuous PN. Aged in French oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews
