Calera Pinot Noir de Villiers Vineyard (750ML)
From Central Coast
|Description:||95 Jd / 94 Vm / 93 Wa. Deeper ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir De Villiers Vineyard reveals more black raspberry, sassafras, tea, and spicy notes. It's medium-bodied, with a juicy, elegant style and a great finish. Jeb Dunnuck. The 2017 Pinot Noir de Villiers Vineyard is fabulous. Rich, exotic and bold, the 2017 offers striking immediacy. Inky dark fruit, spice, lavender and menthol open up first, followed by a range of more savory, mineral notes that are typical of Mt. Harlan. The interplay of fruit intensity and structure makes for a compelling Pinot. Antonio Galloni – Vinous Media. Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir deVilliers Vineyard, aged 17 months in 30% new French oak, gives up broody cherry coulis, underbrush, crushed stone, dried redcurrants and cranberries aromas with notions of blood orange, tea leaves and cured meats. Medium-bodied, intense and layered, it's well framed and juicy with a long and pleasantly restrained finish. 1,382 cases produced. Drink: 2020-2025--Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate.|
