The fruit for this bottling isn't coming from Calera's properties, but rather from some of the best sources in the area including Eden Rift, Bien Nacido, and Chalone. Happily, the excellent fruit translates directly to high quality and singing wine. This is emphasized by Calera's use of French Oak with only 10% of the barrels being new, so the fruit is on full display. The light nose offers candied red fruit, red licorice, pepper, and fresh flowers. The palate displays a mixture of tart red fruits with fresh raspberry shining the brightest, with the delicate florals floating on top and dusty earth rounding it out. In terms of finesse and complexity, this may be the best value in domestic Pinot Noir.
