Highlights

  • This is fifth-generation winemaker Joseph Wagner’s finest homage yet to his grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner
  • The Eulenloch Vineyard thrives in the clay/loam soil and cool, coastal climate of the Los Carneros nested appellation
  • Extended hang time produced spectacular color, supple mouthfeel, great acidity and bursts of flavor
  • Aging nine months in 100% French oak barrels (60% new), imparting velvety texture and a long, elegant finish

In 2001, when Joseph Wagner set out to craft a true, vineyard-designated Pinot Noir, he broke ground in California’s coastal regions, where cool temperatures create the long, steady growing season that’s well-suited for such an elegant grape. And when it came time to label the bottle, he chose the most elegant name he knew — Belle Glos. The name honors his grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner, the co-founder of Caymus Vineyards and an inspirational figure in Joseph’s commitment to viticulture. And Belle Glos represents the culmination of a legacy of elegance with the 2019 Eulenloch, a single vineyard classic California Pinot Noir from the celebrated Los Carneros appellation. It’s a vintage that enjoyed a near-perfect growing season in which ideal hangtime allowed the grapes to achieve spectacular color and flavor. Its generous style will resonate with Pinot Noir fans who love complexity and richness. The darker fruits of blackberry, boysenberry and cherry combine like velvet, while hints of chocolate nibs and brown sugar leave a lush, elegant finish. French oak barrels harmonize the complexity over nine months to create a wine that is as nuanced and rich as its history.
