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.

Our Las Alturas Vineyard is located in the southern portion of the Santa Lucia Highlands, known locally as the Mission District. Its coastal climate is cool, but enjoys warmer afternoon temperatures and tamer winds than the northern portion of the appellation. The combination of the climate with site-specific farming consistently produces pinot noirs of great texture, depth and balance. - Winery

Winemaker's Notes:

When planting this 15-acre vineyard, we matched various Pinot Noir clones to individual slopes and soil attributes of the land. Our yields are deliberately kept low in order to preserve the fruit intensity these clonal choices have given us.
