Belle Glos Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir 2019
|California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley
Rich, ripe and powerful, with notes of chocolate tart and Asian spice to the dark plum and cherry flavors. Forest floor and plenty of toasty accents linger on the finish, with blackberry jam hints. Drink now through 2025.
This is a powerfully extracted and über-ripe bottling, loaded with black cherry, clove and nutmeg. The baked fruit flavors are bombastic on the sip, full of caramel, cherry cordial and oak, clicking the hedonistic buttons while ditching varietal character.
