dark berry fruit on the palate interlinked with black olives and currants on the nose. gorgeous aromas complimented by an even more beautiful palate. refined, delicate, beautiful berry fruit, combined with an earthiness and bit of funk on the finish. a richness to it allowing it to hold up on its own while also working nicely with tonight's pork loin dinner.

Belle Glos is a super premium Pinot Noir produced by none other than Caymus Vineyards and the striking red wax capsule is a statement to the exceptional character of this wine. The Wagner family purchased prime vineyard property in the Santa Lucia Highland, famous for bold, distinctive Pinot Noir. Their Las Alturas Vineyard is a mere 15 acres and the sandy loam soils provide good drainage and yields are kept under two tons per acre. In this high altitude coastal enclave the carefully selected clones ripen slowly, developing rich, intensive flavors. Harvest wasn’t complete until mid October. After a de-stemming and a cold macerating the grapes ferment in controlled temperatures and the wine is aged 9 months in 60% new French oak barrels. The nose shows a rich perfume of strawberry, sugar plums, licorice and vanilla. There’s a core of fruit that pervades the palate of this deeply colored Pinot. The flavors unfold boldly showing strawberry, raspberry, black plums, star anise and vanilla. Grandson, Joseph Wagner is the winemaker.

Climbing up the slopes of the Sierra de Salinas in the Santa Lucia Highlands, Las Alturas ("the heights") is one of the highest-planted vineyards in this appellation. It is robust and full-flavored, yet still retains the acidity natural to wines from coastal regions. The wine's flavors suggest wild berries, ripe plums, barbecue spices and earth.
