This is a tasty Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County in California, however it is not drinking like one. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice, spices and black pepper. Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs. Good right out of the bottle and much better after 2 hours in the decanter, so be patient. I had this wine many times before, and it is drinking very nicely as a 5 year old. Fruit forward and rich, with a bit of RS. Good by itself as a sipping wine. Aged in French oak barrels for 9 months. 14.7% alcohol by volume. 91 points. $50.

Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner is a 4th generation winemaker from a family with farming and winemaking roots in the Napa Valley since 1906. Met Joe several times. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas and sweet spice notes. On the palate flavors of raspberry and ripe blackberry with sweet oak, cacao and espresso notes. Soft fine tannins perfect acidity and balance long finish ending with mineral character. Nice! A Fav!

A bit young, but did unwind with time. Big strawberries.

Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner is a 4th generation winemaker from a family with farming and winemaking roots in the Napa Valley since 1906. Met Joe on his recent trip to CT. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas and sweet spice notes. The palate shows raspberry and jammy blackberry with sweet oak, cacao and espresso notes. Soft tannins and acidity, well balanced, with mineral tones on a lingering finish. Nice!

Excited to try the 16 Clark & Telephone, right after opening it is already good. Let's see how it opens up. A few hours later it is clear that I won't open another 16 until a year from now. Let them sleep...

As solid as the last time I had this bottle. Again, not wowed but enjoying some of the delicate notes of slate and moss that come out with something this balanced. I can taste California!

Pinot time with Belle Glos! Dark ruby red. Soft tannins. Red berries. Faint presence of minerals with a long finish. Cheers

Another vintage of this and still full bodied with distinct Pinot flavours but backed up by sweet fruit and spice. Looks more like Cabernet in the glass, very nice. May not suit the California Pinot purists but I could see this being a good banker for a Christmas or thanksgiving lunch.
