Belle Glos by Caymus showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs produced from some of California’s 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.
"Well-orchestrated, rich, tight, dark and reliant on creamy, espresso-laced oak, this is fun to drink. If oak is your catnip, this is about as good as it gets. Drink now through 2022. 3,540 cases made. " -Rated 91, Wine Spectator
