Calera Central Coast Pinot Noir 2013
Wine EnthusiastSavory, earthy aromas of mushrooms, black pepper, iron and cranberry arise from this blend of nine vineyards, many of which are usually featured in single-vineyard selections. Umami rules the palate, and it's quite full for a lighter-colored wine, with brown spice, light red fruit flavors and expertly balanced acidity.
Wine AdvocateComing from a number of vineyards spread throughout the Central Coast (30% from Laetitia Vineyard, which is the largest component), the 2013 Pinot Noir Central Coast spent 11 months in 10% new French oak prior to bottling. It has a light ruby color to go with perfumed, spice-filled notes of red flowers, sweet cherries, rose petal and sassafras. Beautiful on the palate, with a light, airy feel, plenty of acidity and a great finish, this should represent a super value and drink well for 4-5 years.
Wine SpectatorA dusty, loamy earth character runs throughout, with a trim mix of gravelly red berry, cranberry and cedar flavors. Ends clean. Drink now through 2019. 13,412 cases made.
