After having the last 2 vintages of the Belle Glos Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir, I was definitely curious about the winery. So, when I came across this wine from the same folks, I grabbed it.
The Belle Glos wines come from Joseph Wagner, who chose the name Belle Glos (pronounced BELL GLOSS), to honor his grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner, a co-founder of Caymus Vineyards.
On to the wine – the nose is a cool mix of black tea, black cherry and licorice. The flavours are a juicy mix of that tea, lots of ripe cherry cola and and some black licorice on the medium-long finish. Sounds good, right? Well it is.
This is a HUGE Pinot… It checks in at a ripe 14.6% booze and makes most Pinots look wimpy with its roundness. It literally fills the mouth with its juicy goodness.
If you like your wines soft, ripe and juicy… and you’re a fan of Pinot, I pretty much guarantee you’ll like this wine.
$39.99 at LDB stores here in BC.
