Community Tasting Note

  • Champagne Lady Does not like this wine: 75 points

    November 19, 2013 - Having been a long time fan of Belle Glos (Claark & Telephone Vineyard) I bought a bottle of their new release of Dairyman. It was awful. The cherry favor was over the top and tasted much like cherry cough syrup. I was so very disappointed. Where was the balanced fruit, the lovely aromatic tones, the delightful Pinot? And I live in the wine country with an abundance of great wines. For me, it was a waste of good monies and such a disappointment :((( back to the Clark & Telephone Vineyard which I understand is being ripped up and won't be available for years. Argh.

    Dear Tom,
    Yes, it was most definitely the 2011. Maybe I bought a bum bottle. It happens... And I have been so spoiled by the refined balance and consistency of the Clark & Telephone Vineyard that I was so very hang dog disappointed in the tasting of Dairyman. Arghhh.
    Belle Glos has never failed to perform with wonderful wines. I have been a devotee of them. A dear friend of mine has another 2011 Dairyman and we are going to taste this bottle together. Keep your fingers crossed...
