Calera Reed Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
A fascinating bouquet of rich roast pork with hints of licorice, chicory, redwood bark, black plum and slate are just the beginning of this beguiling wine. There's great tension on the palate with a profound silkiness and edgy grippy tannins wrapped around a captivating core of wild blueberry, brown spice and cardamom. Once opened up the texture is smooth, sensual and graceful with a beautiful lingering finish.
Wine EnthusiastFrom Josh Jensen's 4.4-acre vineyard, this bottling offers black plum and mulberry aromas laced with crushed gravel and lavender notes. There is a powerful minty character to the palate, which helps enliven the hearty ripe cranberry and hibiscus elements. A thought-provoking and earthy wine.
Wine SpectatorOffers chalky perfumed red and dark berry aromas. Tight and chewy on the palate, with tannins that are firm and gripping. May remain that way for some time. Best from 2018 through 2027. 321 cases made.
