Calera's 2011 Pinot Noir Central Coast wafts from the glass with freshly cut flowers sweet red berries and mint.

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. -Antonio Galloni

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... 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.
