Calera Reed Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010
As usual, this is one of Calera's lightest bottlings, in both color and texture. It's deceptively simple, showing softened cola and raspberry jam flavors that finish impressively long and spicy. It would be a mistake to dismiss it for early drinking. Give it a good six years in the cellar, and it could be stunning in 2020.
Trim and spicy, with tart, medium-weight cranberry and sour cherry notes. This delicate, light style offers fine-grained tannins, showing a limestone minerality on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 398 cases made.
