Winemaker's Notes

This wine's fresh bright aromas of strawberry and plum, and its juicy and flavorful mid-palate make for a truly lovely El Niño Pinot Noir.

Great balance and a rich velvety texture, with its hints of spicy oak make this a wonderfully enjoyable Pinot Noir.

Calera's El Niño wines are made from grapes grown by selected vineyards within California's Central Coast Region.
