"I loved the 2012 Pinot Noir de Villiers. It's a beautifully complete, balanced and satisfying Pinot Noir that does everything right. Giving up tons of sweet black raspberry and strawberry fruits, spice-box, dried flowers and potpourri characteristics, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and seamless, with a ripe, supple texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. While there's more than enough fruit to keep this enjoyable now, there's some solid tannin and depth in there as well, so it will age."

Calera’s Mt. Harlan Vineyards are located in the Gavilan Mountains 25 miles east of the Monterey Bay. The site was chosen for its limestone soils and ideal climate. At an average elevation of 2,200 feet it is among the highest and coolest vineyard sites in California.

Each lot is fermented by the action of native yeasts in small open top fermenters, then pressed 14 days after harvest, racked by gravity to French oak barrels and aged without racking in those barrels (30% new) for 16 months. The lots are then combined and the resultant wine is bottled without filtration.

All of Calera's Mt. Harlan vineyards are Certified Organic.
