I don't know about you, but the holiday season decimated my wine cellar. Over the next few months, in addition to purchasing wine for everyday consumption, I am taking on the task of slowly rebuilding my collection. No cellar is complete without a magnum or three, and really good Pinot is an absolute MUST. I am killing two birds with one stone NOW and jumping on today's Once Daily, the 2016 Belle Glos Pinot Noir "Las Alturas Vineyard" from the Santa Lucia Highlands!

The Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, or SLH, located on Monterey County, has become a major destination for world class Pinot Noir. Half of the acreage dedicated to grape cultivation is planted to Pinot Noir vines, which benefit from the morning fog and cooling breezes from Monterey Bay. The region's southern exposure positions it to benefit from abundant afternoon sun, which brings forth grapes with ripe fruit characters.

The 2016 Belle Glos "Las Alturas Vineyard" Pinot Noir is a single vineyard selection crafted by Joe Wagner of Caymus fame. The wine, which has just been released, shows a brilliant deep garnet color and is already showing a forward aromatic medley of black cherry, ripe plum and anise. The dark fruit aromas carry over to the palate, where subtle notes of vanilla, cedar, and sagebrush are nicely integrated into the fruit. This wine is unrestrained, with loads of fruit, yet wonderfully balanced, with firm acidity and layers upon layers of fruit on its lengthy finish.
I can't think of a better wine to start off my 2018 restocking project. Make sure to make this beautiful wine part of yours as well. CHEERS!
