One of my consistent favorites of the Belle Glos single-vineyard efforts, the winery produced an excellent 2015 Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir. This wine combines a full regimen of aromas and flavors—ripe red and black fruits, smoky oak, red berry jam, and sweet vanilla. The wine's complexity makes it a fine choice with seared lamb chops. (Tasted; April 3, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
The color is a deep scarlet-red with lush aromas of blackberry bramble, nutmeg, and hint of caramel. The wine is fresh and exuberant in the mouth with sumptuous strawberry jam, ripe black cherry, cranberry and warm gingerbread. It is perfectly balanced with refreshing acidity, velvety tannins and a hint of toffee carrying through its long finish. When asked to describe this wine, I simply say it's like a taste of Christmas, all year long!
