“Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. It’s where all the fruit is.” – Shirley MacLaine
Wine Harlots aren’t going on a limb in recommending Belle Glos Pinot Noir. The wine is a delicious dilemma – a very complex glass, but approachable at the same time. Fruit-forward with deep black cherry and plummy flavors with rich earth, cocoa and vanilla. Like drinking a glass of chocolate covered dried cherries. Luscious.
The perfect pairing is Baked Salmon with a Cherry Reduction. The music match is “The End of the World” by the Pet Shop Boys from the album Behaviour. Wine Harlots say go out on a limb or to the end of the world to score Belle Glos.
The details: 14.7% alcohol. Cork closure. Appellation: Santa Lucia Highlands. Varietal: pinot noir. Suggested retail: $44 USD. This was a media sample provided by the Wagner Family of Wine.
