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

The 2004 Cyan Pago de la Calera comes from a 1.5-hectare namesake vineyard planted back in 1928 and sees 18 months in new French oak. It has a well-defined bouquet that handles the 15.5% oak well, offering scents of raspberry preserve, crushed strawberry, marmalade and camphor. The palate is full-bodied with a sweet core of plump raspberry and strawberry fruit laced with vanilla, marmalade and orange zest. The finish is grippy and missing a little refinement, although it is certainly packed full of flavor and the alcohol is not imposing. This is a well-crafted, seductive Toro red. Drink now–2020+.

Sweet on the nose but also a little green, with minty aromas of herb mixed with blueberry. It feels typically tannic and tough, with roasted blackberry and chocolate flavors. The finish is tannic, with spicy, chocolaty flavors that last for quite a while. Drink now.
