Belle Glos Taylor Lane Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Our Taylor Lane Vineyard is located on the furthest western ridge of the coastal range, sitting just over the Pacific looking out over the Faralon Islands. However, beautiful as Taylor Lane may be, it was unlike any vineyard site we had ever farmed along the California coast. The key was the similarity to Burgundy in the heat accumulation patterns. We consulted with a Burgundian winemaker to apply some of their traditional, old-world techniques to make Taylor Lane a traditionally steeped, yet California Coastal Pinot Noir coming out of the true Sonoma Coast.
Joseph Wagner, Owner, and Winemaker: "At age 15, Taylor Lane was my first vineyard project. I invite you to celebrate with our Taylor Lane Vineyard Pinot Noir. A wine that's close to the coast, my family, and my heart."
Dark violet to ruby red in color this pinot noir has aromas of Bing cherry, blackberry, pepper, tobacco, and forest floor on the nose. Flavors of cherry, apple, and blackberry are balanced with pleasant acidity and nice minerality resulting in excellent depth and concentration that lingers through to the silky, smooth, and supple finish. This wine tastes great now until 2028.
