Calera Central Coast 2015

Member Review by Nathan P:

"A blend of seven vineyards, full gentle bouquet of red plum, berries and rose petal with mineral accents. Blackberry, raspberry and sour cherry with a hint of sweet oak." [From "Pinot Noir" blind tasting at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 13 October 2012.] Blend of vineyards, broad and complex, juicy, with spice, plums. [From "Pinot Noir" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 13 July 2013.]

This forty-year old winery is located in the limestone-rich Gavilan mountains of San Benito County near Hollister, California. Ninety miles south of San Francisco, the vineyards are at 2,200 ft. elevation. The heat of the season is mitigated by cooling sea breezes from Monterey Bay. Several varietals are grown, with Pinot Noir having the lion's share at roughly 70 % of production, followed by Chardonnay and Viognier at approximately 21 % and 9 % respectively. An entirely gravity-fed production facility, the new building is a testament to artisanal winemaking, with average yearly production nearing 30,000 cases of all varietals. Read less

Vibrant medium cherry-red core with a light garnet rim. Fruit-driven aromas of red cherry ripe cranberry bittersweet chocolate and cola. Super bright fruit on the palate with notes of sweet cranberry sauce fresh picked raspberry light winter spices and a touch of mocha chocolate. Tense and precise throughout the mid-palate with superb texture and a bright streak of minerality. Finishes bright and long with well-integrated tannins. Excellent wine. Alex Lallos.
