Warm spring time temperatures brought on an early bud-break throughout most of
California in 2013. For the second year in a row California saw abundant yields in most vineyards. The warm sunny days of summer made for an ideal ripeness in Calera’s Central Coast Pinot Noir.
Made from grapes grown by selected vineyards in California’s Central Coast Viticultural Area, all lots were fermented with native yeasts in small, open top fermenters. After fourteen days the wines were pressed, settled overnight, and then moved by gravity to Calera’s barrel cellar. The wine was aged without racking in mostly French oak barrels, 10% new, for eleven months. The vineyard lots were combined prior to bottling and the wine was bottled unfiltered.
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.
“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.”
-Jeb Dunnuck, 91 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
