Calera Central Coast Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast|
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.
VinousThe 2016 Pinot Noir (Central Coast) is soft, fruity and delicious, all qualities that make it a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Sweet red cherry, hard candy, and wild flowers are front and center in this gracious, mid-weight Pinot from Calera. The Central Coast Pinot is a terrific introduction to the range.
Wine SpectatorMedium-bodied and juicy, with fruity berry and cherry pie flavors. Pastry notes emerge on the finish. Drink now. 14,000 cases made.
