Belle Glos showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs produced from California’s most noteworthy coastal wine-growing 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.

Owner/winemaker, Joe Wagner chose the name Belle Glos (pronounced “BELL GLOSS”) to honor his grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner. Lorna was a co-founder of Caymus Vineyards, an inspirational figure to Joseph and an avid lover of Pinot Noir.

Description

MY GOAL WITH EACH OF THE BELLE GLOS SINGLE-VINEYARD PINOT NOIRS IS TO EXPRESS THE GENUINE UNIQUENESS OF EACH VINEYARD SITE AND TO CRAFT A TRUE STYLE OF CALIFORNIA PINOT NOIR THAT IS LAYERED, COMPLEX, FRUIT-FORWARD AND RICH.
— Joseph Wagner, Owner/Winemaker

Wine Spectator – 92 Points

Rich, ripe and powerful, with notes of chocolate tart and Asian spice to the dark plum and cherry flavors. Forest floor and plenty of toasty accents linger on the finish, with blackberry jam hints. Drink now through 2025. 8,375 cases made. — KM
