Pinot de combat.

Calera Wine Co. Central coast pinot noir 2011

SAQ Commander | 34,50 $

Calera allie le charme de la Bourgogne au potentiel vinicole californien depuis les années 1970. La fraîcheur du Pacifique façonne un pinot frais et ample marqué par la cerise confite, le clou de girofle et la prune.

«Calera’s 2011 Pinot Noir Central Coast wafts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries and mint. This is a fairly laid-back vintage for the wine, with less of the pure breed of the 2009 and 2010, but frankly that may be an unfair comparison as those wines were superb over achievers. The 2011 is more an inline performer. The tense, saline finish laced with pretty floral and spiced notes is lovely. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.» Wine Advocate
