Belle Glos Balade Single Vineyard Survey Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley|
A dark, purple-red color in the glass, this single-block study begins with spicy aromas of cola and root beer as well as intense but not overripe berry and cherry aspects, a touch of toasty oak and an earthy, tar-like scent. The palate is rich with baked boysenberry-pie flavors but also deep and complex with loamy soil and more cola spice. The structure is tightly woven. Drink now through 2034.
Big and ripe, with concentrated blackberry tart and cherry compote flavors that are well-structured. Chocolate and cream notes linger with savory richness on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
