Calera Central Coast Pinot Noir 2019
Crafted using grapes from a handful of the finest vineyards on the Central Coast, this alluring wine offers lovely aromatics, soft, velvety tannins, and vibrant fruit. On the palate, layers of Bing cherry, wild strawberry, and sassafras are underscored by hints of white pepper and baking spices that add nuance and complexity to a long, lush finish.
Freshly smashed red-fruit aromas are dusted in sagebrush, baked earth and curry leaf on the nose of this appellation-focused bottling. There's a strong herbal presence on the palate, from bay leaf to wild thyme, with ample clove and allspice amping up the snappy pomegranate and dried meat flavors.
