    December 17, 2014 - A usual favorite as a regular drinker. The '12 has a big California Pinot nose and attack, balanced by a bit of dirt and spice, but it gets hot with alcohol on the mid-palate and finish. At least in December '14, this vintage isn't the great daily drinker like usual. Still a cut above your typical supermarket Pinot, just not great like many Caleras can be.

    November 15, 2014 - Fruit is impressive but restrained, not over done (definitely CA).

    October 26, 2014 - Very Pinot on the nose, sweet and ripe plums flavors, potent perfume. Falls apart a bit on the palate, and finishes rough with a fair bit of alcohol. Not sure if time will turn this around, but not a huge fan at this point. Worth paying a little extra for one of Calera's much much better pinots from Mt Harlan.

    September 20, 2014 - Strawberry and cherry fruit. Moderate body, a bit hot on the finish.
    Mid range Cali pinot
