This is a big and round pinot from Santa Lucia Highlands. This has chocolate covered cherries popping out along with vanilla on the back end. For a pinot, the acidity is a bit low and it seems like there may even be some syrah or merlot blended in.

External Reviews for Belle Glos Pinot Noir las Alturas Vineyard Santa Lucia Highland
Dense, concentrated ruby color, hinting at the dark berry fruits and rich, textural components in this wine. On the nose, aromas of raspberry, wild blackberry and a slight earthiness. The palate is supple and layered with exotic spices, a rich meatiness, ripe plum, currant and black cherry flavors. The ripe tannins are nicely balanced with acidity, and the finish is long and fulfilling.
Offers a charming mix of ripe, layered fruit, mixing raspberry, blueberry and boysenberry flavors. This is supple in texture and long, elegant and concentrated on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
