Calera Mt. Harlan Chardonnay 2012

The flagship 2012 Chardonnay Mt. Harlan is drop-dead gorgeous. Smoke, flint, white peach and pear notes burst from the glass in an energetic, vibrant Chardonnay loaded with intensity and class. The 2012 deftly balances texture and the transparency that is the hallmark of hillside vineyards. This is all class. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

One of the best from Calera I have tasted. Stunning and perfectly balanced. Calera should be more famous for Chardonnay.

I'm usually in the ABC camp, but this one doesn't overplay it's hand. Oak, yes, but under control. Just ripe enough. Well done.

More oak than expected, but not too much.

A little cold right now, but pretty damn good. A tad bit ripe. Will update rating later.

Hot! Great underlying material with a good amount of French Oak character, but the alc (14.7%) is too distracting.
