Belle Glos Dairyman Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

$54.99

New release!  The Dairyman Vineyard Pinot Noir is the newest addition to the Belle Glos lineup.   Belle Glos Dairyman Vineyard Pinot Noir, sourced from the southern alluvial plains of Russian River Valley, where the proximity to the Pacific Ocean creates cool morning fog and afternoon breezes resulting in an uncommonly long growing season. Once an old dairy farm and pastureland, this site has since realized its true potential as a prime Pinot Noir vineyard.  Tasting Notes:  The color is quite striking, with the brilliant red ruby hue hinting at the luscious fruit to come. The aromas are abundant with bright cherry, cranberry and brown spice, reminiscent of warm cinnamon toast topped with plum jam. On the palate, the bright cherry opens the show, then evolves into a lush, sweetly spiced plum pudding, coating the mouth with a velvety richness. The acidity is as vibrant as the color, lifting the medley of fruit to lavish heights and augmenting the spicy tones. The wine then develops an intense mineral note, adding yet another dimension, lending way to silky tannins and a lengthy finish that will leave you wanting more.

Dark and opaque. Earthy nose. Unusually heavy and thick for a Pinot, particularly a Cali Pinot. Give this at least two hours in decanter.

Smoke and intense red fruit with just a slight bite of currant and earth.

Deep ruby color. Overripe black cherry, plum jam, strawberry jam, blueberry jam, dried fig, cola and hint of mint. Very strong oak treatment, sweet vanilla, mocha and dark chocolate. Heavy extracted style Pinot and definitely has some RS. Do I like the style? No. Do I like the taste? Yes. 14.7% abv

Dairyman Vineyard sits in the southern alluvial plains of the Russian River Valley near the ocean, a region where cooling fog comes in through the Petaluma Gap in the morning and once again in the evening. Opening a bottle the color was a Bright Ruby with aromas of ripe berries and smoky spice notes. The palate yields raspberry and black cherries with subtle current character, and herb, cedar and cacao. The smooth tannins, soft finish lingered nicely with fresh acidity, great structure. Wow!
