Belle Glos showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs produced from some of California’s top wine-growing regions. The vineyard locations can all be described as coastal, but the climate differences are significant, depending on the amount of fog, wind, sunlight, and soil type at each site.

Clark & Telephone Vineyard, located near the corner of Clark Avenue and Telephone Road in the Santa Maria Valley, is cooled by wind and fog that snakes in from the Pacific Ocean along a channel of the Santa Maria River.

Deep scarlet color; out of the gate aromas of cinnamon, cranberry and a hint of ginger tease for a taste. The palate turns into Christmas in the mouth sweet baking spices and tart berries, even a hint of roasted meat. Throughout the experience a plush weight fills the mouth.
