Belle Glos, Pinot Noir Balade, Single Vineyard Survey 2016 750ML
Santa Maria Valley, California Pinot Noir - Single Vineyard Survey
About the Product: The word BALADE, French for ‘WANDERING’, is a fitting term for Joseph Wagner's annual exploration of SINGLE-VINEYARD PINOT NOIR BLOCKS on the west coast. Each vintage, they bottle only the most compelling and nuanced expression of a Pinot Noir from a single selected vineyard and release it as limited bottling. These wines are usually "Available Exclusively to Restaurants".
Winery Tasting Notes: Bright cherry red with bold, vibrant aromas of blackberry jam, raspberry tart and toasted oak accented by subtle notes of rose petal, violets and cherry cola. This wine is juicy and generous on the palate with baked cherry, fresh strawberry, cranberry and baking spices. Perfectly balanced with bright acidity and a supple mouthfeel. Fine grained tannins provide an authentic textural distinction and structural depth.
