2009 Belle Glos Pinot Noir 'Las Alturas Vineyard' (http://www.brix26.com )

Belle Glos specializes in Pinot Noir, and this one from Las Alturas Vineyard in the Central Coast's Santa Lucia Highlands is a beauty. Rich and full-bodied, it tastes of Asian spices, dark juicy berries and ripe but not candied fruit. The texture is smooth and silky, a wine for slow-braised stews and daubes, a classic coq au vin or just a simple steak.
