K&L Notes

Planted in 1997, the vineyard is named for Marq de Villiers, author of "The Heartbreak Grape," the story of Josh Jensen’s creation of Calera. According to the winery: "Showy and forward with chewy and juicy fruit character, and a rich, lush round mouthfeel."

    This particular bottling from Calera requires a bit of air time to soften up but is the most accessible vineyard-designated Pinot Noir of theirs right now (it will, however, only get better with a few more years of bottle age). Planted in '97, the De Villiers vineyard is Calera's youngest estate site. This bottling sees roughly 30% new oak and is aged in barrel without racking for 16 months. A top-quality wine from one of America's most respected producers.
