Wine Review: This medium garnet colored offering from Calera is very good. It opens with an inviting mild cherry-cola bouquet with hints of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, delicate and balanced. The flavor profile is a tasty strawberry and red raspberry with notes of red cherry. We also detected some hints of rhubarb mixed in. The finish is dry and fades away with a nice extended finish. The Panel suggested pairing this impressive Pinot with roast duck breast. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Beautifully complex and layered, this Pinot Noir offers inviting aromas of bright red cherry, sweet tobacco leaf and sassafras, along with hints of Mediterranean herbs. The cherry notes are echoed on the palate, where they mingle with flavors of wild strawberry, thyme and spice. Youthful tannins add weight and texture to the vibrant flavors, while also promising a long life in the bottle.
