2010 カレラ ピノ・ノワール ライアン
Brilliant garnet in color and showing concentrated cassis, slate, briar and fragrance of white pepper, this 2010 Ryan Vineyard Pinot Noir embodies classic Mt. Harlan minerality; gripping tannic tension and fascinating peaty rose petal and pomegranate. Brown spices melt into a tight, focused finish.
94 Points - ロバート・パーカーのワイン・アドヴォケイト:
"A larger scaled, structured effort that oozes kirsch, strawberry, raspberry, incense and liquid flower-like aromas and flavors, the 2010 Pinot Noir Ryan Vineyard hits the palate with a full-bodied, voluptuously textured feel before firming up considerably on the finish with layers of tannin. It’s a beauty, but needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will shine through 2025+. Drink 2015-2025+.
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
参照 2009年ヴィンテージ - 93 Points - ロバート・パーカーのワイン・アドヴォケイト:
"The 2009 Pinot Noir Ryan Vineyard shows off layers of sweet tobacco, crushed flowers, leather, spices and dried cherries. The 100% whole clusters come through on the saline, floral-infused finish. Bottle age should help the stems to integrate and the tannins to soften. Ryan is Calera’s highest altitude site. 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
