2016 BALADE BELLE GLOS SANTA MARIA VALLEY PINOT NOIR

$55.00 $44.99

One word can tell you a lot about a wine and in the case of Balade, which translates to wandering, the name defines the essence of this new project by Joe Wagner.  With each new vintage, Joe will choose the most compelling and nuanced expression of Pinot Noir from a single site and release as a limited bottling.

Birthed from a single site located in the Santa Maria Valley of Santa Barbara and during the 2016 growing season, this particular vineyard was a stand-out for its fruit and undeniable complexity.  Joe felt this vineyard expressed the quintessential qualities of its origin, with intensely flavored, dark-berry aromas and flavors. Just like all Belle Glos Pinots, it’s one of the deepest and most intense California Pinot Noirs with a generous style that’s resonated with wine lovers who enjoy a richer and more ripe style of Pinot Noir. This BALADE is by far my Favorite New Release from Belle Glos, and I highly recommend a case for BELLE GLOS Fans.

Winery 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.”
