WE 92 WA 91 - "Aromas of boysenberry, blueberry, spice and sandalwood lead you into this alluring 2013 Central Coast Pinot Noir with its graceful yet structured body. Flavors of black plum, graphite, cinnamon hearts, cherry cola, forest floor, oolong tea and a faint whisper of watermelon meander across the palate into a lively, bright and very flavorful finish."

According to Antonio Galloni - "Calera's 2013 Pinot Noir is quite pretty, lifted and expressive. In this vintage, savory and floral overtones dominate over some of the more overt, fruit-driven notes that are often found in this bottling. The 2013 is made from a number of top Central Coast sites, some of which are vineyard designate bottlings at other wineries. Once again, Calera has turned out a delicious Pinot Noir that overachieves for its very modest price point. "

According to Wine Spectator - "A dusty, loamy earth character runs throughout, with a trim mix of gravelly red berry, cranberry and cedar flavors. Ends clean. Drink now through 2019." 14% ABV.



WE 92 WA 91 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "Savory, 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. "

According to Wine Advocate - "Coming 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."
