2010 カレラ ピノ・ノワール リード
This 2010 Reed Vineyard Pinot has gorgeous ruby color and a fascinating bouquet of violets, plum, fresh rain, mineral, sausage spice, birch bark and sage. Its texture is round, silky, lithe and juicy, with a soft tartness that accents amazing flavors of intense dark plum, Asian spice, basil, sandalwood, cigar and tomato leaf. The sweet, ripe fruit flavors lingers on through a long finish. An alluring and unusual Pinot Noir.

"The 2010 Pinot Noir Reed Vineyard, which was harvested from November 6th through November 11th, offers up loads of underbrush and sweet spice to go with medium-bodied, elegant and textured palate that shares the same integration and balance of all of this estate’s wines. A beautiful bottle of wine, with a weightless feel and building tannin, it should be enjoyed over the coming decade. Drink now-2023.
Open, voluptuous and sexy efforts, these all benefitted from substantial air time and gained richness and depth over the evening. They’re brilliant Pinot Noirs." (Wine Advocate #208 Aug 2013) - Jeb Dunnuck

"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 the 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.
Readers who want to experience the finest Pinot Noirs being made in California should put Calera at or near the top of their lists. The 2009s are simply breathtaking in their beauty. I am not sure why I was so blown away by the estate’s 2009s, as the entry-level 2009 Central Coast Pinot I reviewed last year provided more than enough clues as to the quality of the rest of the lineup. Based on that wine, I should have known what to expect. Congratulations to proprietor Josh Jensen and his entire team on these magnificent, utterly compelling wines. Organic farming, native fermentations and minimal racking are some of the choices that inform the Calera wines." (Wine Advocate #202 Aug 2012) Antonio Galloni
