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 several times. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas and sweet spice notes. On the palate flavors of raspberry and ripe blackberry with sweet oak, cacao and espresso notes. Soft fine tannins perfect acidity and balance long finish ending with mineral character. Nice! A Fav!

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

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!

Excited to try the 16 Clark & Telephone, right after opening it is already good. Let's see how it opens up. A few hours later it is clear that I won't open another 16 until a year from now. Let them sleep...

Pinot time with Belle Glos! Dark ruby red. Soft tannins. Red berries. Faint presence of minerals with a long finish. Cheers­čŹĚ

Silky , a little spicy , a bit more full-bodied than most ... a Pinot for cab sav lovers
