RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Pinot Noir De Villiers Vineyard, from vines planted in 1997, bursts from the glass with expressive, juicy fruit. Dark red berries, flowers, mint, spices and an orange rind follow, leading to a generous, inviting finish. The De Villiers is the only vineyard-designate Pinot made from fully de-stemmed fruit. It is a towering wine of incomparable class and elegance. Simply put, this is a stunning showing from Calera. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. 96+

COMMENTARY: One of the advantages of being in the wine tasting business for nearly a half a century is tasting wines in their youth, and as they age. While I don’t recall trying the 2009 Calera de Villiers Vineyard Pinot Noir upon its release—I have tasted many a young Calera Pinot Noirs—this wine has matured very nicely and is a pure joy to drink now. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits superb development. Its aromas and flavors of tart strawberries, cola berries, and dried earth are nicely integrated. Pair its complex nuances with grilled salmon in savory herbs. (Tasted: July 13, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Calera, California
Calera Mt. Harlan Vineyards Winery Image
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.

At elevations reaching well over 2,000 feet, the Mt. Harlan AVA in the Gabilan Range is an anomaly among its surrounding Central Coast appellations. Recognizing the splendor of the area and its ideal limestone-rich soils, Josh Jensen chose Mt. Harlan as the home of his Calera Wine Company in the 1970s. Awarded his own AVA in 1990, Calera is the only commercial winery in the appellation.
