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
