One of the more subtle wines in the range, the 2011 Pinot Noir Mills Vineyard impresses for its sense of proportion and balance. Nothing is out of place. Black cherries, plums, crushed flowers, mint and anise develop in the glass, but ultimately the Mills is mostly about sensual, radiant texture. The highly expressive, lifted finish is a thing of beauty. There is so much to admire here. In 2011, these own-rooted vines yielded a wine of true delicacy and finesse. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Quintessential Calera Pinot with forest floor and black tea. California Burgundy if you will

Almost too rich for pinot though it has great acidity so it's not too weighty.

Heavy dill upon first pour. Most of it blew off into a nice strawberry dominant drink. Tasty but not my favorite.

Dominated by crushed red fruit and good acidity. Was definitely macerated for a good while before being bled off the skins. There was an underlying limestony aspect on the finish. Would love to see where this would be in 5-7 years.
