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. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, October 2020)

An easy drink, the good kind of subtle, balance

Medium ruby color. Aromas of cherry, oak, smoke and spices. What a tasty Pinot! Happy Pinot Day everyone!

Very nice wine. Mix berry flavors with some tobacco and oak notes. Balanced tannins and great finish. Perfect with steak and Kim enjoyed it with her lobster dinner too!

My third Belle Glos pinot noir with the voluptuous wax seal in a row. This time the pull tab worked making the seal a cinch to open. This one is a beautiful deep red color without the purple hue of the others. Complex nose of dark fruit, cherry and cola. It explodes on the palate with cherry, plum and black cherry with a lush mouthfeel and a pepper spice finish. The only downside for me is that its a little sweet and syrupy at times but if you get it on sale its great.
