Natalie's Score: 92/100

Sweet cherry-berry aromas and flavours on the palate. Vanilla oak spice, smoke and raspberry compote and preserves on the finish. Full-bodied Californian Pinot Noir. This is one of four single vineyard wines from this winery and considered the most robust of all four. Gotta love that red melted wax seal: makes a great gift package. Pair with grilled chicken. Lots of mocha and dark chocolate and caramel on the finish from oak aging. arch 31, 2017).

Pinot Noir food pairings: pork, beef Carpaccio, mushroom and leek risotto.

Reviews and Ratings

Belle Glos Las Alturas Vineyard 2015 is a smoky, full-bodied -- yes, full-bodied Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands, Monterey County, California. Produced by Joseph J. Wagner, this PN has a lot going on: rich and spicy with ripe cherry, florals and spice on the nose with ripe cherry, raspberry jam, dark chocolate, and smoky vanilla flavours on the palate. Love it. Pair with a roast leg of lamb or a venison tenderloin. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
