Calera Central Coast Pinot Noir 2016
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.

Wine EnthusiastA tangy plum aroma meets turned soil on the rustic and rugged nose of this appellation blend by the historic winery, now owned by Duckhorn. The turned earth component shows on the palate as well, with additional flavors of thyme, dried sage, plum and baked sour cherry.
