You can tell the vines are younger here. Touch more primary in style than expected.

Calera always good. Very fresh fruit. Hint of wood spice.

Definitely racy and concentrated. It needs a few minutes to settle in the glass before it completely reveals itself. The fruit is ripe but not dominating. Acidity is present and the finish asks for another sip.

Wow. Full, rich, light...pow! Love Calera pinots; this was my first of the Ryan bottlings. It will not be my last. Elegant and structured, but excellent, full (yet subdued?), fruit from the outset. A delight for all palates. I've never been disappointed with a Josh Jensen wine, but this is another level. My goodness, thanks for sharing! Wow.
