Perfect wines for Thanksgiving dinner
As a fifth generation Napa Valley winemaker of the famed Caymus family, Joe Wagner learned his way around a vineyard long before he was of legal drinking age. By the time he was 19, he created Belle Glos, with a focus on a luxurious line of vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs from California’s best coastal regions.
Belle Glos showcases the distinctive Pinot Noirs from top growing areas in California including Russian River Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Lucia Highlands. Joe has recently added two additional vineyards to the Belle Glos collection, Ballade (Santa Maria Valley) and Eulenloch (Carneros in Napa Valley). The Ballade was previously a restaurant only wine, so we are pleased to offer this bright and Juicy Pinot for the first time. The Eulenloch is their newest release offering a darker pinot from Napa for the cabernet lover. They will be sampling the 2016’s for these two wines, which are nicely aged and drinking beautifully right now. They purchased the last stock available for these two wines for this tasting.
The Taylor Lane Sonoma Coast Pinot is a special release item only available in Magnums. Joe went retro with this gorgeous bottle, making it a Burgundian Style with the help of a French Wine Consultant.
Any of these wines would be fantastic for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday or make a perfect Holiday Gift with the beautiful waxed top!
