Calera, Pinot Noir, Central Coast, California, USA, 2017
Crafted using grapes from a handful of the finest vineyards on the Central Coast, this alluring wine offers lovely aromatics, soft, velvety tannins and vibrant fruit.
On the palate, layers of Bing cherry, wild strawberry and sassafras are underscored by hints of white pepper and baking spices that add nuance and complexity to a long, lush finish.
"Aged 10 months in 10% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Central Coast has a pale to medium ruby colour and open, inviting aromas of wild blackberries, oolong tea leaves, dried cranberries and cherries with touches of underbrush, charcuterie, dried flowers and earth. The palate is light to medium-bodied with a firm, finely grained frame and earth-laced fruits, finishing with lovely freshness and spice. 20,000 cases were made."
92/100 points, Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate, February 2020
