When we see that trademark splash of wax, we know good times are ahead. The signature Burgundy drizzle on Belle Glos' bottles makes eyebrows raise, pupils dilate and mouths water. There's a reason why - there is simply no more decadent Pinot Noir on Earth – It will vanish in an instant! In a mere 15 years, Belle Glos has gone from upstart to a winery that deservedly competes with Kistler, Peter Michael and Pisoni as America's best. There's no doubt about supreme quality when you see that splash of red wax. Low yield paired with increased demand led Belle Glos to take a price increase, but the wine is worth it – we’re talking a wine that competes with $200+ Kistler and Peter Michael Pinots.
About the wine
The Wagners have a bloodhound's gift for nosing out under-utilized vineyards. Like their other great sites, Clark & Telephone was an unknown parcel that now feels like it was destined for their stewardship.
The result is nothing short of astounding – the super-long hang-time and low yields generate Pinot with unctuous texture and splendid, flowing fruit.
The taste explodes onto the palate with raspberry jam, blackberry and black cherry, coated in caramel, gingerbread and toffee, and kissed with a beautiful oak treatment that layers on nuances of cinnamon, crème brûlée and espresso.

"A beautiful raspberry red, big, bright fruit aromas. Raspberry, cherry cola and a Plum in a full, evenly balanced, slightly dry Pinot. Great from beginning to end." Tim M.
"I liked this wine a lot. Tons of bright raspberry and cherry fruit. A touch of spice on the finish. A big ripe fruity wine." Bil C.
"I’ve wanted to try this for a while, and it didn’t disappoint one bit. Exquisite spiced fruit on the palate, cherry, blueberry, raspberry, closing with vanilla and chocolate notes in a finish that’s as smooth as a baby’s bottom. It was quite nice on its own, but boy did it pair incredibly well with short rib bourguignon at Toulouse." Richard G.

"Juicy, flanked by intense notes of dried underbrush to the raspberry and red currant flavors. The sleek finish is dominated by a crunchy spiciness. Drink now through 2023. 6,780 cases made."
