Belle Glos Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir (750 ml)
About this item
- Appellation: Santa Maria Valley, California
- Aromas of wild blackberry, raspberry jam and cedar box
- Juicy and generous
- Balanced with bright acidity and a supple mouthfeel
Bright ruby red with fresh, vibrant aromas of wild blackberry, raspberry jam and cedar box accented by rich floral notes. This wine is juicy and generous on the palate with sweet cherry, field-ripened strawberry, cranberry and just-baked gingerbread. Perfectly balanced with bright acidity and a supple mouthfeel. Fine grained tannins provide an authentic textural distinction and structural depth.
We harvested early in the morning so the fruit would arrive at the winery while the grapes were still cool to preserve the vineyard-fresh flavors. After de-stemming, but not crushing, the berries, we cold-soaked the fruit for up to two weeks to soften the skins and allow for ideal extraction. During fermentation in a combination of closed and open-top stainless steel fermenters, we used both punch-downs and pump-overs to extract color and tannins, and also to control temperatures and maximize flavors. We aged the wine in 100% French oak (60% new, 40% seasoned) for up to nine months. After the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, we racked it twice before making the final blend.
