2000 Calera "Reed Vineyard" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

SKU #1080002 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Palish red, with some brick at the rim. Intriguing aromas of strawberry, rhubarb, woodsmoke and baking spices. Juicy, precise and rather delicate, with nuanced flavors of strawberry, earth and gunflint. More harmonious than the Jensen, conveying a stronger impression of soil tones. Far more interesting than your everyday California Pinot Noir. (ST)  (7/2005)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2000 Pinot Noir Reed Vineyard reveals a light ruby color along with classic scents of underbrush, stems, beet root, and sweet cherries in the background. While there is considerable clout and authority on the palate, the wine is tightly knit. (RP)  (8/2005)

K&L Notes

Producer note: "Producing great wine is our number one priority and very simply put, there are no compromises. There was no question in Josh Jensen’s mind that he would plant his first grapes on limestone-rich soil, and so began his quest to find the perfect site to produce a California wine to rival the best French burgundies. This site turned out to be a barely accessible mountainside in the central part of the state, but now more than 35 years later and in spite of prevailing opinion that Pinot Noir grapes could not be successfully grown in the U.S., Calera is a symbol of perseverance and grace, and remains a true pioneer in California Pinot Noir."
