Yes, Calera nails this wine every time but the 2012 delivers some pretty astonishing depth for the money.

Not as much depth as hoped. Berries and a bit of earth came thru the next night... But falls a bit flat in my book as I had greater expectations.

Ridiculously good for Calera's entry level pinot. Cherry, strawberry, chocolate, terrifically balanced. I'm buying lots more of this.

Ok and drinkable but not as smooth as you would expect. Reminds me of a house wine but not one for your collection.

Earthy with nice strawberry notes. Great representative of what a Central Coast Pinot can be.

Usually a big fan of Calera but this was not my favorite. A little too dry and not much complexity but some good bite nonetheless.
