2012 CALERA “RYAN VINEYARD” PINOT NOIR
Whether featured on the cover of the Wine Spectator, named one of the top 100 Wineries by Wine & Spirts or clinching 95+ scores from Robert Parker, Calera’s brilliant Pinot Noirs from Mount Harlan have set the bar for what’s possible in California. Since his inaugural release nearly forty years ago, proprietor Josh Jensen has a magical touch when it comes to Pinot Noir. His Pinots are remarkable immediately upon release, and have proven to age for two decades in exceptional vintages.
Chosen for its limestone soils and ideal climate, Calera’s Mt. Harlan Estate is located in the Gavilan Mountains, 25 miles East of Monterey Bay. At 2,200 feet in elevation, it’s among the highest and coolest vineyards in California.

2012 CALERA "RYAN VINEYARD" PINOT NOIR
"Tightly wound, with a firm mix of snappy dark berry, gravel, cedar and limestone, featuring fine-grained tannins that keep the flavors on the palate, giving them traction and persistence...Best from 2016 through 2026. 1,875 cases made." - 93 points, Wine Spectator
From Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, "From one of the cooler terroirs on the estate, the 2012 Pinot Noir Ryan Vineyard offers full-bodied richness and depth to go with ample sweet black cherries, cassis, sassafras, crushed flowers and toasted spice. A decidedly hedonistic, full throttled example of this cuvee, this superb Pinot Noir firms up nicely on the finish and has a full, layered mid-palate. Drink it now, or cellar it for a decade. These latest 2013s from Josh Jenson were superb across the board and at the top-end were some of the most impressive Pinot Noirs I was able to taste for this report." - 94 Points
