2005 Calera "Mills" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

SKU #1038565 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The deep ruby/purple 2005 Pinot Noir Mills Vineyard has a sweet nose of boysenberry, black raspberry, and a hint of blueberry as well as a floral note. Medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannins, and wonderful depth, length, and texture, this may be the most succulent and precocious of the 2005s, but it will evolve for at least a decade. Inner quote mark (8/2009)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark On first glance, this almost gangly young Pinot Noir impresses as being a bit narrow and less than complex, but, when given a chance to bloom, it reveals increasingly rich fruit and scattered suggestions of herbs, spice, dried flowers and toast. Quite firm on the palate, yet with a good sense of extract, it is simply too young for drinking any time soon and will not reach its best for five or more years. **two stars** Inner quote mark (10/2008)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red with a fading rim. Cherry and Campari on the nose, with subtle floral and herbal notes adding complexity. Light-bodied red fruit flavors are refreshingly bitter, with a zesty mineral bite adding nerve. Very nicely balanced, with excellent finishing lift, grip and length. This really hangs onto the palate. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2008)
