Winemaker's Notes:

This enticing and delectable 2010 Vin Gris of Pinot Noir has a wonderful, deep rose color and a fragrant, spicy bouquet of strawberry and raspberry with a kiss of jasmine. Flavors of pomegranate and cranberry are vibrant, bright and bold with good body and depth making a wine that is delicious and fun, with a surprisingly long and pleasing finish.

About Calera:

Calera is a small ultra-premium winery located in the limestone-rich Gavilan Mountains, east of Monterey and south of Hollister, California. Josh Jensen planted Calera's first 23 acres of Pinot Noir in 1975. An additional 26.6 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Viognier were planted in the 1980s, and 33 more acres, mostly Pinot Noir but also some additional Chardonnay, in 1997 and 1998. All these parces are in the Mt. Harlan AVA that was created in 1990. Calera produces 8 single-vineyard wines from Mt. Harlan, as well as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from grapes purchased from selected vineyards in the Central Coast regions.
