Calera Pinot Noir Mount Harlan Mount Harlan Cuvée 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2008 Pinot Noir Mills Vineyard takes shape beautifully in the glass, with layers of bright red fruits, flowers, spices and tobacco. It is an impeccable, polished wine from start to finish. This is one of the wines that shows more stem character than some of the others. A textured, multi-dimensional finish of considerable elegance sets the Mills Vineyard apart. Here, too, there is a slightly fleeting quality, but there seems to be enough fruit for the wine to drink well for another handful of years, perhaps longer. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. (Aug 2011)

Vivid red. Pungent aromas of candied red berries, incense and botanical herbs, with a suave floral note gaining strength with air. Juicy and precise, with seamless texture and very good depth to its spicy red and dark berry flavors. Finishes sappy and long, with echoing notes of red berries and flowers.

The 2008 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard bursts onto the palate with a rush of intensely perfumed fruit.

Vivid red. Deep strawberry and raspberry aromas are complicated by of rose, cinnamon and musky herbs. Sappy and precise on the palate, with very good depth and vivacity to its sweet red fruit and floral pastille flavors. Silky tannins add shape to the long, spice-accented finish. Quite elegant, especially with an hour or so of aeration.

A floral and pure nose that reflects vegetal hints that are more in the character of adding complexity than actual greenness introduces delineated and vibrant middle weight flavors that possess a dusty and moderately structured finish that delivers lovely persistence.
