91 Points   The Wine Spectator

"This supple, graceful style pushes ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors to the front, with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon and black tea, making for an engagingly complex effort. Drink now through 2026."

Our Thoughts.........

Ruby-red with sparkling garnet highlights. Aromas of wild blackberry, Santa Rosa plum, and strawberry with hints of oregano, sage and white pepper. Inviting flavors of ripe raspberry, boysenberry, black-fruit jam and warming spices; moderate acidity and bold tannins.

A bit about Russian River Valley Pinot Noir....
The Russian River Valley is recognized as one of the world’s most ideal regions for growing Pinot Noir. Just a few miles from the Pacific ocean, the Russian River Valley benefits from natural air conditioning in the form of cool and often foggy air that arrives in the evening, then retreats the following morning. The result is a longer growing season which allows Pinot Noir to develop full flavors while retaining its natural acidity. The unique soils of the region also contribute exponentially to the quality of the wine grapes grown in them. Over millions of years water flowing off the mountains has carried with it eroded volcanic deposits and ancient, uplifted bedrock, while the Russian River has deposited large amounts of alluvial material to form prime benchlands.

A bit about Joe Wagner....
As a fifth generation Napa Valley winemaker, Joseph learned his way around a vineyard long before he was able to drink wine. By the time he was 19 he knew that he would continue his family’s winemaker legacy, working alongside his father at Caymus Vineyards. In 2001, he created Belle Glos, with a focus on vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs from California’s best coastal regions.

More recently, he has launched a number of new brands under Copper Cane Wines & Provisions. Joe has a keen interest in contributing to the evolution of the wine industry, by discovering new winegrowing locations and experimenting in the cellar. He is thrilled to release BÖEN – an expression of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir made in his signature style of rich, ripe fruit flavors balanced with bright acidity and judicious hints of toasty oak.

Roots in Agriculture
In 1849 when gold was discovered in California, people came from all over the world to stake their claim. Overnight, it seemed, the tiny port of San Francisco grew into a sprawling city. Many of the new pioneers sought their fortunes not in the gold fields of the Sierra foothills but in farming the fertile valleys north of San Francisco.  Food and wine from Napa and Sonoma soon supplied San Francisco’s burgeoning and increasingly affluent population.

Joe has always focused on making wines that best represent the region in which the grapes are grown. In California, the abundance of sunshine and warm days over a long growing season contribute to wines that are rich, bold and robust – a style that Joe and his family have always loved.

To produce wines that are round, opulent and supple, Joe studies the physiology of the vine throughout the growing season. When the green canes begin to lignify, or turn to wood, they take on a copper hue. This color shift signals that the green character and harsh tannins have been purged from the vine, and thus the resulting wines – the grapes are ready to be harvested. While other wine-growing regions of the world may struggle to get a fully ripened crop each vintage, it’s the norm in California to be able to achieve optimal ripeness. Joe strives for this each and every vintage..
