Clark & Telephone is one of three Belle Glos single-vineyard labels. This vineyard is located near the intersection of two lonely roads in the Santa Maria Valley (Santa Barbara County) hence the name "Clark and Telephone". This maritime site yields loose clusters with small, intensely-flavored berries. Through heavy pruning and crop-thinning techniques, we were able to bring the composition of these grapes into balance at harvest while preserving the spice-box notes, elegant texture and rich fruit core that are the hallmarks of the site.

Very dense and superconcentrated, this offers an impressive mix of dense blackberry, raspberry and huckleberry, holding its focus and maintaining its supple texture. Drink now through 2023.

Very rich and flamboyant, this may even be a little over the top. It shows a tremendous essence of raspberries and cherries that have been folded into mascarpone cream and dusted with cinnamon and brown sugar. It's delicious, seemingly sweet and dramatic, but somewhat obvious in its appeal. Even the winemaker calls it "Christmas in the mouth." Drink now.
