Calera Pinot Noir Mount Harlan Selleck 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Another highlight among these new releases, the 2009 Pinot Noir Selleck Vineyard is made in a much more fruit-driven style than some of the other Pinots in this lineup. It boasts stunning depth and richness, but in the classic Calera style that never abandons a sense of structural finesse. Juicy dark berries, hard candy, flowers and herbs wrap around the rich, textured finish. This is yet another dazzling Pinot from Calera. Selleck is a site with a south/southwestern exposure...95" WA 08/12 "This is compositionally similar to the Ryan but the aromas are not quite so deeply pitched. There is excellent volume to the generous and round flavors that retain a lovely sense of detail as well as wonderfully appealing depth and fine length on the balanced and impressively long finish. This can match the Ryan’s persistence but not quite its depth but to be clear, this is still first rate....91" BH 10/12 "Bright red. Complex, highly perfumed bouquet of red and dark berry preserves, cola, black tea and musky flowers. Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors firmed by a spine of juicy acidity. Closes on a spicy note, with excellent clarity and lingering floral notes...93" IWC 11/12

This thirty-year old winery is located in the limestone-rich Gavilan mountains of San Benito County near Hollister, California. Ninety miles south of San Francisco, the vineyards are at 2,200 ft. elevation. The heat of the season is mitigated by cooling sea breezes from Monterey Bay. Several varietals are grown, with Pinot Noir having the lion's share at roughly 70 % of production, followed by Chardonnay and Viognier at approximately 21 % and 9 % respectively. An entirely gravity-fed production facility, the new building is a testament to artisanal winemaking, with average yearly production nearing 30,000 cases of all varietals. Read less

This 2009 Selleck Vineyard Pinot Noir is fascinating and simply stunning. It begins with evocative flowing aromas of gardenia, red currant, cranberry, flinty minerality, pine and faint black licorice. Flavors are concentrated, intense and velvety; lingonberry, dark cherry, a whisper of cinnamon and citrus rind, and seamlessly encompass the palate with a texture that is graceful, broad and beautifully balanced, then lingers slowly on into a juicy, almost ethereal, mouthwatering finish.
