The 2009 Pinot Noir De Villiers Vineyard from vines planted in 1997 bursts from the glass with expressive juicy fruit. Dark red berries flowers mint spices and an orange rind follow leading to a generous inviting finish. The De Villiers is the only vineyard-designate Pinot made from fully de-stemmed fruit. It is a towering wine of incomparable class and elegance. Simply put this is a stunning showing from Calera. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. 96+ -Antonio Galloni

Intense spice-accented aromas of candied red fruits cherry-cola and fresh rose with subtle earth and anise notes emerging with air. Juicy penetrating sweet raspberry and floral pastille flavors show a seamless texture. Closes sweet and long with resonating berry and floral elements and fully absorbed tannins.

Shows much in common with past vintages of this bottling. It's dry tart in acidity and somewhat earthy with a nice balance of cherries herbs and cedar. Feels complex and distinguished in a dry elegant style.
