Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner is a 4th generation winemaker from a family with farming and winemaking roots in the Napa Valley since 1906. Met Joe on his recent trip to CT. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas and sweet spice notes. The palate shows raspberry and jammy blackberry with sweet oak, cacao and espresso notes. Soft tannins and acidity, well balanced, with mineral tones on a lingering finish. Nice!

Haven’t had it in years. No balance. Below average bottle of wine.

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

Over extracted. Flabby. No acidity. Couldn't even finish it.

Smells like Pinot, looks like Cab, but finishes more like Zin. Strawberry, chocolate and loads of Christmas spice. Jammy and hits the palate like a brick. Is it good? Yes. But it lacks focus. That has to be taken into account.

I think the 2013 will be the Best Yet from Belle Glos! It needed a little time to open up, But is is a Beauty! Loaded with Fruit, great Balance and Acidity. This is a Winner! I give this a 96 + Rating. It will not disappoint anyone. It's 6pk time here.. Bravo! CB

New vintage, better than 2012.. This 2013 is very good but needs time to settle down. Delicious!

I think it's time for me to move on from over extracted PN. Not that I was ever there. I truely wonder what would happen to sales if they quit dipping the bottle like Maker's Mark?

BEAUTIFUL color on this wine, just stunning.

The nose gives off delicate red and pink flower notes, along with cola, cedarwood and white chocolate.

This is one of the prettiest wines I've ever tasted. Pure velvet luxury on the palate with candied red cherry and balanced acidity.

Compared to the Belle Glos Dairyman pinot noir I had last month this was a good deal better. Now onto Las Alturas!
