Winemaker Notes

The heady bouquet on our 2007 Selleck vineyard Pinot Noir is youthful, broad and aromatic, with pomegranate, black cherry, rose petal, white pepper and strawberry. Deep, dense, rich flavors of boysenberry, cassis, limestone, devil's food cake and a streak of sweet cherry underlie the rich mouthfeel with soft but pronounced fine-grained tannins that give us a peek into this wines very long aging potential. Its persistent finish is long and seductive.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Even better is the 2007 Pinot Noir Selleck Vineyard, perhaps the finest Pinot ever made by Calera. This 4.8-acre vineyard planted in 1975 has a much warmer southwest exposure than some of the estate’s other sites. Only 411 cases were produced of this compelling Pinot Noir. Sassafras, black cherry, raspberry, plum, pomegranate, cedar, and underbrush aromas are accompanied by a full-bodied, ripe wine with beautiful acids, an intense underlying minerality/terroir character, and a long finish. The 2007 Selleck is slightly less evolved than the Jensen, but it is an impressive Pinot that should age effortlessly for 10-15+ years. Kudos to Josh Jensen for producing this remarkable group of wines!

Wine & Spirits
In 1975, Josh Jensen planted the Selleck Vineyard on Mt. Harlan, a rocky, south- to southwest-facing slope where he found more limestone in the soil than in his other vineyard sites. The exposition lends this wine more concentration than Reed (recommended below), shown in the depth of color, darker fruit tone and grip of the mineral-inflected tannins. Transparent and vinous rather than directly fruity, this hints at woodland cherries and fraises des bois. There's a purity and honesty to the flavors that are rare in the New World and increasingly difficult to find in the Old. Both the Selleck and Reed '07s are magnificent California wines, suited to long aging.

Calera Winery Video

In 1975, legendary vintner and American wine pioneer Josh Jensen founded Calera (Spanish for “lime kiln”) high in the remote Gavilan Mountains of California’s windswept Central Coast. There, in Mt. Harlan’s low-yielding, limestone-rich soils and cool, arid climate, he began planting what would ultimately become six small estate vineyards. Today, these vineyards are recognized as some of the New World’s most revered Pinot Noir sites.

Calera is a vision, and Calera’s wines truly express the sense of place. Rather than follow the recommended path, Josh Jensen became a pioneer in American Pinot Noir. Taking his cue from the great domaines of Burgundy, which have grown grapes in limestone soil for centuries, he set out in search of the perfect spot in California to create wines unique to the world but in the style of the greatest wines of France. Site selection was vital as he ventured off the grid to plant on the site of an old limekiln in the Gavilan Mountains of California's Central Coast.

Under the stewardship of Winemaker Mike Waller, each vineyard is renowned for producing singular wines of uncommon purity, elegance and aging potential. In addition to its beloved single-vineyard wines, Calera partners with some of the top vineyards on California’s majestic Central Coast to make Calera’s beautiful Central Coast wines, including a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
