The 2016 Chardonnay Mt Harlan from Calera is  excellent, wafting from the glass with notes of  yellow orchard fruit, citrus blossom and blanched  almonds. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, ample  and elegantly textural, with lovely tension, chalky  grip and a pure, stony finish. This is a beautifully  balanced offering from Calera that still feels tightly  coiled, and I wouldn't be surprised if my score  comes to look conservative.

The 2016 Chardonnay (Mt. Harlan) is a powerful, phenolic wine built on structure and intense minerality. Smoke, slate, lemon confit, white flowers and herbal notes open up in the glass, but only with great reluctance. I would prefer to cellar the 2016 for another 6-12 months, as it really needs time to come together. Even so, it is impressive at this early stage.
