Winemaker's Notes

"Bright intensity" describes the color, aroma and flavor of the 2000 Mills Pinot Noir. Sweet red fruit aromas of strawberry and cherry are enhanced with notes of cedary spice, black pepper and oak. This big-bodied wine displays a wonderful balance of fruit, smooth tannin, and unctuous texture. While delightful now, this wine will continue to develop and should age beautifully for at least ten years.

Calera's Mt. Harlan Vineyards are located in the Gavilan Mountains 25 miles east of the Monterey Bay. The site was chosen for its limestone soils and ideal climate. At an average elevation of 2,200 feet, it is among the highest and coolest vineyard sites in California.
