Wine Enthusiast 93 points – This blend from sites across the Central Coast carries all the expert hallmarks of the brand, from ripe fruit to earthy spice. Tightly wound aromas of pomegranate, berry, soil and star anise lead into a crisp yet savory palate of raspberry and deep cherry. Pinches of dried sage and thyme linger on the finish.May/2020
Wine Advocate 92 points – Aged 10 months in 10% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Central Coast has a pale to medium ruby color 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..February/2020

Description

Calera Wine Company’s history goes back 30 years, to when Josh Jensen fell in love with the wines of Burgundy and decided to turn that love into his life’s work. Calera’s mountainous, limestone-laden vineyards produce grapes of great depth, character and longevity.Limestone had been commercially quarried from Jensen’s Mt. Harlan property a hundred years earlier. Next to his vineyards, there stands a magnificently well-preserved 30-foot tall masonry limekiln. The name “Calera” is the Spanish word for “limekiln,” which serves as the winery’s symbol and appears on every bottle of wine.The wines of Calera include 5 single vineyard Pinot Noirs, Chardonnay, Viognier and Dessert Viognier from the Mt. Harlan appellation, and Pinot Noir & Chardonnay from the wider reaching Central Coast appellation. Calera is one of the most compelling Pinot Noir specialists of not only the New World, but of Planet Earth – Robert Parker Winemaker of the Year 2007 – San Francisco Chronicle Winery of the Year 2006, 2008, 2009, 2011 – Wine & Spirits Magazine
