Calera Mills Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010

SKU 1969


Beautiful Bing cherry, currant, ripe plum, faint licorice and white pepper notes permeate the the bouquet of this delightfully brooding 2010 Mills Vineyard Pinot Noir. Fascinating flavors of black cherries, Marionberry, iron, tobacco, strawberry and cola accent the stately tannins and signature flinty limestone character. This wine is focused and structured with a delightful blueberry finish.

Wine AdvocateThe transparent ruby-colored 2010 Pinot Noir Mills Vineyard has considerable structure and depth hiding under all of its texture and richness. Offering up notions of sweet cherries, strawberry, underbrush, crushed flowers and chalky minerality, it has a massive mid-palate, incredible purity and a seamless, elegant overall profile. It, too, will have 10-12 years or more of prime drinking. Drink now-2025.

Wine EnthusiastThis is delicious now for its raspberry and cherry sweetness, accented with smoky oak and brightened by crisp acidity. It shows the elegance that Calera Pinots are known for. It's complex enough to offer lots of pleasure, but you may want to age it for 6-8 years to let it mellow.

Wine SpectatorFirm, dark and intense, well-centered on wild berry, savory herb, tea and spice, this comes together on the vibrant, persistent finish. Best from 2014 through 2022.
