"From a cooler site, the 2012 Pinot Noir Reed Vineyard lacks the weight and depth of some of the other releases, yet has beautifully perfumed and complex notes of sassafras, kirsch, sweet black cherry, pepper and pine resin on the nose. These give way to a medium to full-bodied, seamless, elegant Pinot Noir that has no hard edges, sweet fruit and a forward, yet still focused and balanced profile on the palate. Aged 16 months in roughly 30% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it should evolve gracefully through 2022."

With its the north-facing slope, Reed Vineyard is a distinctive site at Calera. Each day’s picking becomes a separate lot up until shortly before bottling. Each lot is pressed 14 days after harvest, racked by gravity to French oak barrels, then aged without racking in those barrels (30% new) for 18 months. The lots are then combined and the resultant wine is bottled without filtration. Full malolactic fermentation is completed.
