Surprisingly zesty and refreshingly less huge than is the norm for the Meiomi pinot noir. One of the best vintages in...

This is a deeply colour, ruby shaded young red with excessive, out of balance sweetness. Reminds me of black forest...

Another uniquely Belle Glos version of red wine with nothing to do with pinot noir from anywhere. A pure jam and oak...

This is one of our favorites at a local wine bar, which they describe as a fruit and spice bomb. When I saw it in the LCBO I wondered why I missed it on WineAlign. Now I see why. OK, it is not exactly as subtle as a Prince Edward County pinot noir. But if you forget preconceptions of how pinot is supposed to taste, this is very pleasant indeed, and it grows on me as I drink more of it. This bottle is labeled 2013.

A distinctively California Pinot, which is to say, particularly given the presence of Santa Barbara and Monterey grapes alongside Sonoma, a thick and rich Pinot that is something of a departure from most other (earthy, more frugal) Pinots; strong smoky and spicy notes from the nose through the lingering finish, but some excellent red fruit emerges as well, particularly cherry, strawberry, and raspberry; certainly on the sweet side, with chocolate coming through amidst the fruit, but very pleasant and layered with enough complexity to avoid seeming monolithic.

Well well well, what a let down. Man what a pathetic effort. I really thought I'd give this another try and see if it's improved...and well, it's gotten even worse. This is $10 grocery store wine. Sweet and okay. Very short finish. Caramel cotton candy lingers. Sorry Joseph Wagner, you seem like a good winemaker but this stuff really sucks. $27.95 at the LCBO - robbery.
