April 30, 2019 - PnP. A medium to plus bodied pinot with solid red fruits, balancing acidity, and a vein of spice. However, it just didn't taste like pinot noir. Could it be another of Joe's "concoctions"? Not our preferred style.
December 16, 2018 - Earthy, good wine but doesn't taste like Pinot Noir.
October 17, 2018 - This is holding well. Time has helped it lose some its flubber and sweetness. After an hour or 2 it was showing nice red fruit with smooth tannins and no discernable sweetness as it usualy does when younger. Perfectly integrated. Having to open a 750, I would decant it an hour.
September 29, 2018 - Very earthy but finally exhibited Pinot characteristics. Very dark still but overally enjoyable as a Pinot Noir.
July 21, 2018 - Wonderful dark fruit. Beautiful Pinot. Short decant.
July 15, 2018 - Opened for a few hours before dinner. Dark red fruit on the nose, the palate is dark cherry, red plums and spice. The finish is full and moderately long.
July 6, 2018 - The last time I tasted this vintage was November of 2014. 4 years ago this was very brightly flavored, very lively. This time it was much more subdued; still very good, but it had lost some of the energy I enjoyed so much back in 2014.
June 21, 2018 - Heavy and sweet. Not my style of pinot noir.
February 18, 2018 - Fine Pinot with earthiness to it.
January 20, 2018 - Another winning bottle from Belle Glos. Fruit forward powerhouse of a wine. Lots of intense dark fruit in a rather heavy styled Pinot Noir. Love it
