BELLE GLOS 2013 PINOT NOIR "LAS ALTURAS" SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 750mL

Located in one of the highest plantable sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County, this pristine bench offers the Las Alturas Vineyard cool, coastal days with consistent sunshine and a foundation of Gloria sandy loam soil. The high elevation, up to 1200 feet, and southern locale of Las Alturas Vineyard is slightly warmer by day and cooler by night with abundant sunshine and less wind than the northern portion of the appellation. All of these favorable conditions work to enhance the phenolic profile of each berry. When planting this vineyard, various Pinot Noir clones and rootstocks were matched to the most fitting soil types and slopes. Yields are deliberately kept low in order to augment the fruit’s intensity.

WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "Spares no expense, with lavish smoke and black licorice–scented oak framing a rich core of dark berry, anise, boysenberry and savory herb notes. Full-blown and expressive through a persistent, mouthcoating finish. Drink now through 2024."
