    April 20, 2019 - Decanted for 30 minutes. Cherry, plum, earth and spice aromas and flavors. Rich and ripe on the palate with fine tannins. Very long finish. Medium to full bodied. Served with honey glazed ham.

    December 9, 2017 - 7th Annual Christmas dinner and cellar raid (Naperville, IL): Part of Christmas wine dinner and cellar raid and didn't take detailed notes. Belle Glos never disappoints.

    December 4, 2017 - This is a beautiful pinot noir. It has been three years since I last tied a bottle and I served it last night with the oven roasted salmon. Red fruit on the nose. The palate is dark cherry, red plum, a hint of baked apple and some baking spices which come out on the smooth, full finish.

    February 28, 2016 - In a great spot. Some slight heat lingering on the finish but this is open for business. Cherries, strawberries, herbs, and a bite of spice with a great mouth-feel into a nice finish. If you like the style drink away. If you don't like the style, just pretend it's not Pinot and enjoy a well made wine.
