Belle Glos by Caymus showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs produced from some of Californiaís top wine-growing regions. The vineyard locations can all be described as coastal, but the climate differences are significant, depending on the amount of fog, wind, sunlight, and soil type at each site.
Each wine is crafted to distill the purest essence of the vineyard into elegant expressions of California Pinot Noir.
Winemaker Joseph Wagner chose the name Belle Glos (pronounced BELL GLOSS) to honor his grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner, a co-founder of Caymus Vineyards.
"This bottling has varied over the vintages, but 2010 has produced a softly lush, rich Pinot for drinking now. Itís as tasty as a dessert confection, with flavors of raspberry jam, buttercream and cinnamon toast, balanced with acidity. For all the richness, it finishes properly dry." -Rated 90, Wine Enthusiast
