PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEWS:
Calera’s Mt. Harlan Vineyards are located in the Gavilan Mountains 25 miles east of 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. 2016 was a near-ideal growing season characterized by a warm spring and a relatively early bud break followed by warm, sunny summer. While summer provided abundant sunshine for ripening the grapes, mild nights ensured that they ripened perfectly, with excellent acid and sugar levels. As a result, the 2016 Pinot Noirs are lush and balanced, with beautifully articulated flavors. Today's offer will captivate you with its alluring aromas of blackberry, cassis, and cedary cigar box. On the palate, lush dark berry and black currant flavors are supported by a firm tannic backbone that frames the fruit and carries the wine to a long, energetic finish. (winery notes)

93 points, Wine & Spirits Magazine:

"De Villiers was planted in 1997 on largely east-facing slopes high on Mt. Harlan. Josh Jensen used that fruit to produce this dark, smoky pinot noir. It quickly sheds its leather savor in favor of dark, burnished cherry spiced with pipe tobacco, cradled by oak but hardly dominated by it. Showing well now, it’s built for the long haul." (8/19)

92 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"There is impressive density to the bottling, starting with aromas of roasted black cherry and blackberry as well as cocoa and wood spice. It’s heavy on the palate with full flavors of blackberry, bay leaf, and more dark chocolate." (10/1/19
