Calera Selleck Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013


SKU 20069


What complexity... Aromas of star anise, bacon, licorice root, cocoa, blackberry, sandalwood, camphor and apple blossom are simply engulfing. This wine possesses deep umami character and flavors of smoked paprika, ginseng and cherry liqueur. It is seamlessly integrated, beefy and graceful all at once. It's velvety and heady; finishing with plush, candied violet and lingers on and on. A truly captivating wine.

Wine AdvocateThe biggest, richest wine in the lineup is the 327-case 2013 Pinot Noir Selleck Vineyard, which comes from the 4.8-acre Selleck Vineyard (this is one of the warmer terroirs on the estate). It was harvested from September 24th to October 4th, spending 18 months in 30% new puncheons before being bottled unfiltered. This is a blockbuster, rich, concentrated and textured Pinot Noir that has bright acidity, a huge core of fruit and layers of framboise, red currants, forest floor, mint, dried flowers and exotic spices. Needing air to show at its best, this beauty is up with the 2012 and absolutely one of the finest Pinot Noirs coming out of California. This totally profound wine will be better in a year or two and drink well for over a decade.

Wine EnthusiastFragrant lilacs and plump mulberries mix with black clove, allspice, pine needles and dark earth tones on this bottling by Josh Jensen from this 4.8-acre vineyard. The palate presents hearty sagebrush spice and an easily enjoyable character of black cherry that lead into the more complex pine sap, bay leaf, wild thyme and euclalytpus components.

Wine SpectatorAn exuberant style, with an expressive mix of zesty blackberry and wild berry fruit, offering alluring floral scents of violet and spice. Holds focus and glides along gracefully on the finish, where the tannins give the flavors traction. Drink now through 2022.
