The Wine Advocate Tasting Notes
“Readers looking for a classic, incredibly well made Pinot Noir to buy by the case should look no further than Josh's 2014 Pinot Noir from the Central Coast AVA. Supple, sexy, seamless and elegant, with classic Calera notes of raspberries, mulled cherries, spice and dried soil, it has no hard edges, a core of sweet fruit and a beautiful finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. I'm sure it will keep for 4-5 years (probably longer), but there's no need to delay gratification. Don't miss this fabulous effort and bravo to the Calera team for delivering this level of quality at the price.”

“Outstanding” 94 Points
“Fresh, rich, sexy...these are just a few words to describe this remarkable Pinot. The 2014 Calera delivers the perfect balance of forward fruit and spice at a price that is hard to beat. Gorgeous aromas of ripe berries, cherry and truffle expand on a lush palate to include rich dark fruit and minerality. This was definitely a surprise in the blind tasting. Well done!” - California Wine Avisors
