WA 90 AG 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The only 2012 Pinot Noir I was able to taste, the straight 2012 Pinot Noir Central Coast is 95% destemmed and spent 11 months in 10% new French oak. A superb value, it gives up ripe berry fruits, flowers, underbrush and rose petal-like nuances in a medium-bodied, ripe, textured and balanced profile. It’s a knockout quaffer to enjoy over the coming 2-4 years.
According to Antonio Galloni - Calera's 2012 Pinot Noir Central Coast is gorgeous. Sweet, floral aromatics meld into bright red fruit in a silky, understated Pinot Noir bursting with class and pure polish. The 2012 is a wine of superb balance and grace. Once again, Calera has done an incredible job with the Central Coast bottling.
According to Wine Spectator - A supple, graceful, charming style, with delicate plum, raspberry and blueberry notes. Pure and pleasing, this is easy to warm up to. Drink now through 2018.
According to Wine Enthusiast - This Pinot is dry in style and tart with acidity, along with flavors of cranberries, cherries, sweet tobacco and oak. Gritty tannins and inconsistently ripened fruit lend this wine a common touch.
