Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Calera opens with plum and mild oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral and gentle oak influenced red plum with notes of craisin and a touch of cinnamon spice. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate dusty tannins stick around for quite some time. This Pinot would stand up well with a blackened salmon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 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.
