#VINOMUSIC: Listen to Tycho and Drink a 2014 Belle Glos Dairyman Pinot Noir
Music and wine should be paired. We call this #VINOMUSIC.
When was the last time you carelessly floated in the ocean, staring at nothing but the blue sky above you? Or stood on a snowy mountain top, breathing in the fresh, crisp air while enjoying a view that lasts for miles? How about walking through the desert with only the unpolluted, star-filled sky to guide your way?
That’s what it’s like listening to Tycho – an all-instrumental artist that layers rich, electronic sound against airy guitar and percussion. Spend some time with his latest album released earlier this year, Epoch, to get a sense of what I mean. The atmosphere of it is just gorgeous.
Much like Tycho’s ethereal musical style, the 2014 Belle Glos Dairyman Pinot Noir is equal parts luxurious and airy. You might know pinot noir for its cherry-forward palette, light body and silky tannins. It’s also a notoriously fickle grape. The varietal is prone to disease while on the vine and requires a cooler climate to really thrive.
2014 Belle Glos Pinot Noir
Belle Glos embodies the hell out of a pristine pinot noir. Owning four vineyards up and down the California coast, Belle Glos focuses exclusively on pinot noir. Each vineyard produces its own distinct wine, each carrying a beautiful profile of what a true California pinot noir should be.
The Dairyman vineyard is Belle Glos’s Russian River Valley version of a pinot noir. The Russian River Valley is a Sonoma County AVA that proudly wears the badge of a world-class region for this grape. The 2014 Dairyman is a killer vintage. You’ll get that classic red fruit and vanilla smoothness from the oak, drinking like a cherry cola made for royalty.
The price tag for this one is around 50 bucks, but SO worth it if you’re hunting for that quintessential Sonoma style in a pinot noir. Plus, every bottle is dipped in a vibrant red wax. It’s a sexy appearance to match its identically sexy flavor.
Enjoying a 2014 Belle Glos Dairyman Pinot Noir with Tycho on the speakers will transport you to a brisk, spring evening atop the dramatic cliffs of Big Sur. With its A+ California terroir on your tongue, and Tycho’s sensuous vibes in your ear, this wine is all about getting aligned with nature.
