Tweed jacket. Leather Hat. The Selleck Pinot Noir is the subtle stunner. Perfumed and concentrated with "Old Style" complexity. Structure built upon limestone foundation. Weathering 44 years of mountain top conditions at altitude, makes this one of the top Pinot Noirs in the new world.

Winemaker Notes
Pure, poised and elegantly powerful, this beautiful wine offers bright fruit, velvety, mouthcoating tannins and a long, complex finish. Aromas of raspberry candy, pomegranate and sandalwood rise from the glass. On the palate, the flavors turn dark and rich, with layers of blackberry jam and chocolate gliding across the silky tannins to a lush, compelling finish.
Production
Though the 2015 growing season resulted in the earliest harvest ever at Calera, the quality of the vintage is exceptional, with our 2015 Mt. Harlan Pinot Noirs displaying elegant textures, with beautiful depth and complexity. A dry winter was followed by an early spring, which resulted in our vines blooming early, in mid-April. With little winter rainfall, 2015 also marked our fourth year of drought. While this led to lower-than-average yields, the small crop and a consistently warm summer ensured that the grapes ripened perfectly, with extremely well-balanced acid and Brix levels. Harvest began on August 26th with the majority of our grapes arriving in the winery in pristine condition by September 15th.
