2007 Calera Wine Company - Pinot Noir Ryan Vineyard



Wine Spectator  

Serves up a mix of full-bodied peppery cherry and wild berry fruit. This is tight, showing a chewy texture and ending with firm tannins, which have a slight green edge. Best from 2011 through 2017. Jim Laube

Wine Advocate  

From one of the property’s coolest sites, the 2007 Pinot Noir Ryan Vineyard reveals nearly overwhelming notes of sassafras, root vegetables, plums, red currants, and raspberries. It is a spicy, earthy effort with an autumnal-like herbaceousness. Aged 17 months in French oak (30% new), it is a Pinot Noir for those who prefer that varietal’s spicy, stemmy, earthy side. Nevertheless, there is still plenty of fruit in this complex, singular cuvee. 

This may be the strongest group of wines Calera has produced in many years. From their less expensive whites through the generic and single vineyard Pinot Noirs, this remarkable portfolio showcases this idiosyncratic terroir isolated on Mt. Harlan. For starters, Calera has once again made the finest Aligote in America. Robert Parker
