Whether featured on the cover of the Wine Spectator, named one of the top 100 Wineries by Wine & Spirts or clinching 95+ scores from Robert Parker, Calera’s brilliant Pinot Noirs from Mount Harlan have set the bar for what’s possible in California. Since his inaugural release nearly forty years ago, proprietor Josh Jensen has a magical touch when it comes to Pinot Noir. His Pinots are remarkable immediately upon release, and have proven to age for two decades in exceptional vintages.

Chosen for its limestone soils and ideal climate, Calera’s Mt. Harlan Estate is located in the Gavilan Mountains, 25 miles East of Monterey Bay. At 2,200 feet in elevation, it’s among the highest and coolest vineyards in California.

Description

2012 CALERA “DE VILLIERS VINEYARD” PINOT NOIR

 

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “I loved the 2012 Pinot Noir de Villiers. It’s a beautifully complete, balanced and satisfying Pinot Noir that does everything right. Giving up tons of sweet black raspberry and strawberry fruits, spice-box, dried flowers and potpourri characteristics, it’s medium to full-bodied, layered and seamless, with a ripe, supple texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. While there’s more than enough fruit to keep this enjoyable now, there’s some solid tannin and depth in there as well, so it will age. These latest 2013s from Josh Jenson were superb across the board and at the top-end were some of the most impressive Pinot Noirs I was able to taste for this report.” – 95 points
