4th generation winemaker Joseph J. Wagner with winemaking roots in the Napa Valley since 1906. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas, tar and sweet spice notes. On the palate flavors of ripe raspberry and jammy cherry with sweet vanilla oak, cacao and pepper spice notes. Soft tannins and bright acidity, well balanced, with mineral tones on a long finish ending with toasty spice! Nice!

New vintage, same delicious fruit forward Pinot. Clark & Telephone is the best of these Belle Glos Pinots, I believe. Opulent.

Classic Belle Glos style - fruit forward and really smooth for a Pinot. Great to revisit, and good vintage.

This young Pinot Noir from California is already drinking very nicely.

Big, bold and opulent. Rich, yet elegant. Very fruity on the palate.

Showing black fruits with wood, vanilla, earth, spices, chocolates, tobacco leaf and light green vegetables.

Spicy finish with soft tannins.

I prefer drinking this at around 5 year of age.

I gave it a long decant (2 hours), which callmed it down a bit.

A Pinot Noir for the Cabernet lover.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$50.

Pinot on steroids. But not over extracted and it all works.

A bit young, but did unwind with time. Big strawberries.
