International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 165

Vivid ruby-red. Intense, spice-accented aromas of candied red fruits, cherry-cola and fresh rose, with subtle earth and anise notes emerging with air. Juicy, penetrating sweet raspberry and floral pastille flavors show a seamless texture. Closes sweet and long, with resonating berry and floral elements and fully absorbed tannins.

Wine Advocate Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: 202

The 2009 Pinot Noir De Villiers Vineyard, from vines planted in 1997, bursts from the glass with expressive, juicy fruit. Dark red berries, flowers, mint, spices and an orange rind follow, leading to a generous, inviting finish. The De Villiers is the only vineyard-designate Pinot made from fully de-stemmed fruit. It is a towering wine of incomparable class and elegance. Simply put, this is a stunning showing from Calera. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

Chunky, with ripe, rich dark berry fruit that's full-bodied and chewy. Needs time. Best from 2013 through 2020. 1,438 cases made

Nicely balanced and pure; shows plenty of its terroir. Structured and showing a pleasant bit of brett on the finish. Masterfully made.
