Calera Central Coast Pinot Noir 2012
|Region||California, Central Coast|
Calera's 2012 Pinot Noir Central Coast is gorgeous. Sweet, floral aromatics meld into bright red fruit in a silky, understated Pinot Noir bursting with class and pure polish. The 2012 is a wine of superb balance and grace. Once again, Calera has done an incredible job with the Central Coast bottling.
A supple, graceful, charming style, with delicate plum, raspberry and blueberry notes. Pure and pleasing, this is easy to warm up to. Drink now through 2018. 15,000 cases made.
This Pinot is dry in style and tart with acidity, along with flavors of cranberries, cherries, sweet tobacco and oak. Gritty tannins and inconsistently ripened fruit lend this wine a common touch. It's certainly not an ager, but it is an appealing wine to drink now.
