Light garnet hue and delicate aromas of cardamom, graphite, sandstone, rose petals and blueberry instantly draw you into this fascinating and unusual Pinot Noir. Reed vineyard, with its north facing aspect gives us a most alluring mélange of black plum, forest floor, dried cranberry, rhubarb fennel, mint, black cherry, sage and white pepper. The texture is graceful, lithe and balanced with assertive, playful tannins promising a long and interesting life. A Pinot Noir collector’s delight.

Wine Notes

"The 2009 Pinot Noir Reed Vineyard is one of the more direct wines in this lineup.  There is an exotic quality to the spice, orange peel and tobacco notes that is deeply intriguing, but in the end the fruit is more of a soloist than an orchestra.  None of the Calera wines can be called straightforward, but the Reed is one of most simple.  Still, within the broader context of California Pinot Noir, it is fabulous – just not as fabulous as its stable mates!  Anticipated maturity:  2014-2024." - Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate, 93 points
