2015 Calera 40th Anniversary Vintage Central Coast Pinot Noir (Was $26.99) 750ml

Quick Overview

The bouquet possesses a lovely mix of richness, fruit and savory like blackberry pie; quite comforting. On the palate we find intriguing hints of pink rose, briar, red currant, violets and spice; this Pinot has an alluring silky texture with deep flavors of black cherry, baking spice and a whisper of licorice. It’s nicely structured and lingers beautifully on the finish. The fourth year of a drought gave us very low yields across California, resulting in wines with great depth and concentration. 2015 was the earliest and fastest harvest ever for us here at Calera. After hand harvesting, the grapes were fermented with native yeast in small open-top fermenters. After fourteen days, the wines were pressed, settled over night, and then moved to Calera’s barrel cellar. The wine was aged without racking, in French oak barrels, 10% new, for eleven months. The individual barrel lots were combined prior to bottling.

2015 Calera 40th Anniversary Vintage Central Coast Pinot Noir (Was $26.99) 750ml

Calera Wine Company's history goes back more than 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” is Spanish for “limekiln.” Limestone had been commercially quarried from the property 100 years earlier, as evidenced by the existence of a recently restored 30 foot tall masonry calera, the symbol and logo of Calera Wine Company.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 92

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The keenly priced 2015 Pinot Noir 40th Anniversary Vintage from Calera is lovely, wafting from the glass with youthfully complex aromas of potpourri, cherries, strawberry and spice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, expansive and velvety, with a succulent core of fruit, melting tannins and a long, tangy finish. Enjoy this delicious offering now or over the coming decade. This was an interesting set of releases from this venerable Central Coast winery, founded by the pioneering Josh Jensen and acquired in August last year by the Duckhorn Wine Company. Several of the wines reviewed here offer great value, above all the 2015 Pinot Noir Central Coast
