2005 Calera "Ryan Vineyard" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

SKU #1038564 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Pinot Noir Ryan Vineyard is one of the more closed and earthy wines of the vintage, with notes of root beer, damp earth, pomegranate, plum, licorice, and roasted herbs. It is elegant, rich, ripe, and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, but it is backward and in need of a good 2-3 years of bottle age...This is a vintage for Calera that should age beautifully for 15 or more years... Inner quote mark (8/2009)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Musky red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by dried flowers and herbs, with a strong anise note gaining strength with air. Light in body and refreshingly bitter, offering focused cherry flesh and pit flavors, with a rooty licorice topnote. A firm and rather uncompromising wine that benefited from aeration, picking up sweet finishing notes of raspberry and candied plum. Inner quote mark (12/2008)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Spicy, with cola-sassafras flavors riding over a core of dried cherry, mineral and pebble notes. Needs time. Inner quote mark (6/2008)

K&L Notes

This is the fourth vintage of Calera's "Ryan Vineyard" Pinot, from the youngest block on their Mt. Harlan estate. With a west-facing aspect and high elevation, this vineyard imbues a unique freshness and vibrancy to the fruit while maintaining classic Mt. Harlan minerality, focus and structure.
