Calera Pinot Noir 2011

Red cherry with blackberry and plum plus notes of allspice, bay, dill and a hint of smoke. Medium bodied, slightly heavier than it appears, well integrated with some complexity. Heavy-silk mouthfeel — very satisfying. A seven-vineyard blend from four Central Coast counties, mostly (39%) San Felipe Vineyard, Santa Clara County. The team pulls together as one, individualism set aside, yet gathers its strength from each individual’s unique contribution. A very good wine and a value. (Reviewed 1/1/13)
