2011 Belle Glos "Dairyman Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1155014 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark in hue, rich and dense, this offers a potent mix of berry pie flavors that are lively, complex and well-oaked. Quite harmonious, with the fruit and creamy wood scents in sync. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2013)

K&L Notes

Owner and winemaker Joseph Wagner named Belle Glos winery in honor of his grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner, who was a co-founder of Caymus Vineyards in Napa Valley. Wagner produces Pinots from all over California and the grapes for this particular wine come from the Dairyman vineyard in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Planted in 2000 to a mix of Dijon clones 116, 667 and 777, this vineyard obviously was once a dairy farm and pasture land. The vineyard sits on the southern alluvial plains of the Russian River Valley near Sebastopol, Calif., a region where cooling fog comes in through the Petaluma Gap in the morning and once again in the evening. (Side note: Dairyman is also one of the not-too-many vineyards that's situated alongside a dedicated wine country walking and biking path in California wine country, the Joe Rodota Trail.)
