Pinot ReportMedium ruby color; rich, spicy earthy cherry aromas; rich, lush dusty cherry flavors with some toasty notes; good structure and balance; long finish. Rich, ripe Pinot with great balance.
Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateReviewer, Antonio Galloni - Calera’s 2011 Pinot Noir Central Coast wafts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries and mint. This is a fairly laid-back vintage for the wine, with less of the pure breed of the 2009 and 2010, but frankly that may be an unfair comparison as those wines were superb over achievers. The 2011 is more an inline performer. The tense, saline finish laced with pretty floral and spiced notes is lovely. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.
