Belle Glos Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Deep garnet in color with an aromatic medley of black cherry, marionberry, ripe plum and a hint of anise. Dark fruit on the palate with flavors of wild berries, caramelized oak and cacao nibs complemented by subtle notes of vanilla, cedar and a hint of lavender and forest floor. Rich and unrestrained, this wine's abundant fruit is beautifully balanced by firm acidity and layers of red and black fruit.
Creamy oak is the salient feature in this appealing effort, marked by snappy wild berry, raspberry, gravelly earth and vanilla flavors. Drink now through 2025.
