Once again, de Villiers has produced one of Calera's most voluptuous and dark-fruited expressions of Pinot Noir, with 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.
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.
Concentrated and richly spiced, with flavors of cherry, raspberry and red currant that are well-knit and feature lively mineral and cedary accents. Creamy finish. Drink now through 2023.
