Calera's Central Coast wines are made from grapes grown by selected veineyards in California's Central Coast viticultural area. These include the Scheid, Laetitia, Zabala and Doctor's Vineyards.
Primarily sandy, silt and clay soils
The grapes for the Central Coast Pinot Noir were hand harvested. Some of the sites employ organic vilticulture.
All lots were fermented with native yeasts in small, open top fermenters.
Aged without racking in mostly Francois Freres barrels, 10% new, for eleven months.
The 2015 Pinot Noir (Central Coast) is an attractive wine to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet red cherry, hard candy, mint, rose petal and spice are all racy and forward in the glass, with silky tannins and lifted aromatics that play off the riper elements nicely. This is an especially overt style for the Central Coast Pinot.
