About Our Ratings

Belle Glos 2012 Pinot Noir, Las Alturas Vyd., Santa Lucia Highlands
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 Highlands, 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. This 2012 was just scored 91 points by Wine Spectator who said "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."
