    May 10, 2017 - This is my third (and last) bottle of this and this was a bit of a departure from the others as this comes off as particularly stewed and extracted compared to the first two. I know that last word is a bit charged, but it feels heavy and thick. Still, this is a tasty wine, that no doubt would please a large segment of the wine drinking population. thedrunkencyclist.com

    January 31, 2017 - I have already written about Belle Glos’ distinctive wax seal (if you are going to have wax, go all-in—don’t have the pull tab), so no need to go there again (although I think I just did). The wine, though, is still faring quite well. Opulent fruit, a touch of earth, and a solid finish. What’s not to jump up and down about? Well, in a word, nothing (since I don’t think they are going to heed my advice regarding the wax). thedrunkencyclist.com

    January 31, 2016 - Retail $65. Honestly, I think the whole wax thing is a bit over the top. In fact, even Wagner sees it as simply decorative as they have a pull tab on top to assuage the fears of the wax averse. Once I get past the wax, this comes close to a whoa. Really close. Cherry and eucalyptus on the senses and the fruit continues to tantalize by tickling the tongue. Impeccably balanced with just a hint of tannins. Drink in the short term since there is no reason to wait. It is a big juicy Pinot and if you like that style, you will certainly love this. thedrunkencyclist.com

    April 7, 2015 - Wonderful Pinot with a lot of body. Drank well by itself with hints of blackberry and chocolate. Didn't like the wax bottle cover because it was hard to remove and made a mess.

    March 21, 2015 - The nose of this wine is made up of dried cherries, pencil lead, cedar, and a hint of smoke. It has solid, well rounded tannins and the finish lingers. This bottle is drinking really nice right now and I am happy to have cellared it for 5 years before opening it.
