Reviews and Ratings

From Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, Belle Glos Dairyman Vineyard 2018 Pinot Noir continues to impress with its lush, smooth and silky dark cherry, wild berry, blackberry, mocha and savoury herb flavours finishing long with a dusting of ginger and toasty oak spice on the palate. The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine are grown on alluvial soils. This cooling morning effect (from the fog that roll in daily from the coast) and the loamy soils allows the Dijon clone of Pinot Noir in this wine to ripen slowly and to full maturity. The vineyard was once a dairy farm and pasture. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
