Belle Glos Pinot Noir Las Alturas 2018 / 1.5 L.

Item#: 48003

WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/1/2020
This powerful Pinot Noir offers intense aromas of black plum, purple flowers and toasty melted caramel. The palate is loaded with herbs and spice, from tarragon, sage and bay leaf to cardamom and anise, as well as a rich boysenberry-jam core.
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
Deep ruby-red. Oak-spiced cherry and black raspberry aromas pick up a smoky nuance with air. Smooth, sappy and focused on the palate, offering subtly sweet red and dark berry flavors that deepen through the back half. Finishes velvety, gently tannic and long, leaving sappy raspberry and cherry notes behind. In a distinctly lush style but this Pinot doesn’t lack for energy.

Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 8/2/2022
The 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is spicy and lifted with cinnamon and dried roses, fresh with wild raspberry fruit and blood orange. The palate is medium-bodied and softly textured, characterized by elegance and finesse. Drink over the next 10 or so years. (Audrey Frick)
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
The 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley has a medium ruby color and aromas of cranberries, pomegranate and burnt orange peel with wafts of woodsmoke and dusty earth. Medium-bodied, soft and silty, it has a concentrated core of fragrant red fruit and a long finish layered with spicy accents. This 2018 vintage offers exceptional quality at an appellation level. 2,585 cases produced. (Erin Brooks)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2021
Well-framed, with rich savoriness to the dried cherry and berry flavors. The juicy finish shows mineral and cooking spice notes that linger with forest floor accents. Drink now. 2,585 cases made. (Kim Marcus)

Roasted red-cherry aromas are cut by singed sagebrush on the nose of this bottling. There’s a dusty, earthy core to the palate, where the crisp red fruits are lean and fresh.
VN8989 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2020
The 2018 Pinot Noir (Santa Barbara County) is a delicious wine that shows how compelling this vintage is. Sweet red cherry, mint and rose petal are beautifully lifted. The 2018 is vibrant, detailed and enticing.

Ripe, overflowing with red cherry and raspberry flavors backed by luscious acidity and medium-grained tannins. Offers kirsch and allspice notes that coat the midpalate, with chocolate mousse notes on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 10,600 cases made.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2022
A big, bold and superripe style of Pinot Noir, this bottling offers thick aromas of red and black cherry alongside mace and milk chocolate on the nose. The palate is viscous and powerful, with flavors of baked strawberry, cherry, nutmeg and licorice. The structure and acidity rise toward the finish.

Ripe and decadently spiced, with concentrated kirsch, dark plum and cola flavors that are well-knit. The plush, creamy finish packs Asian spice notes. Drink now through 2025. 9,885 cases made. (Kim Marcus)
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2022
This is an extremely ripe and bold style of Pinot Noir, showing kirsch, cola, root beer and anise on the nose. The powerful extraction extends to the sip as well, where black cherry, pie crust and vanilla bean flavors sit atop a thick mouthfeel, with a touch of prune on the finish. (Matt Kettmann)
