Belle Glos Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Belle Glos single-vineyard Pinot Noirs express the uniqueness of each vineyard site and crafts a genuine style of California Pinot Noir that is layered, complex, fruit-forward and rich. Our Las Alturas Vineyard is an ideal location for growing such a robust, opulent and full-flavored style of Pinot Noir.
This powerful Pinot Noir offers intense aromas of black plum, purple flowers and toasty melted caramel. The palate is loaded with herbs and spice, from tarragon, sage and bay leaf to cardamom and anise, as well as a rich boysenberry-jam core.
Deep ruby-red. Oak-spiced cherry and black raspberry aromas pick up a smoky nuance with air. Smooth, sappy and focused on the palate, offering subtly sweet red and dark berry flavors that deepen through the back half. Finishes velvety, gently tannic and long, leaving sappy raspberry and cherry notes behind. In a distinctly lush style but this Pinot doesn't lack for energy.
Toasty notes accent the brambly dark fruit and spice flavors. Dark chocolate details linger on the juicy finish. Drink now.
