Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir was my favorite from the 2014 Belle Glos portfolio. It opens with a red and black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle cherry with notes of faint oak. I also detected hints of blueberry. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This very smooth Pinot Noir is very food friendly. It would go very nicely with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep ruby red in color with intriguing aromas of sun-warmed blackberries, ripe plums, with hints of black licorice. A complexity of dark berry fruits unfold on the palate; blackberries and Bing cherries along with dark chocolate flavors. Vanilla and cedar oak undertones on the mid-palate further enhance the wine. The overall impression is rich with refined tannins, firm acidity and explosive layers of ripe fruit.

Organic status: not organic
