Calera’s Mt. Harlan Vineyards are located in the Gavilan Mountains 25 miles east of the Monterey Bay. The site was chosen for its limestone soils and ideal climate. At an average elevation of 2,200 feet it is among the highest and coolest vineyard sites in California.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Winemaker Notes
Once again, de Villiers has produced one of the most luxurious and dark-fruited expressions of Pinot Noir from Mt. Harlan. Beautifully aromatic and with a lush, mouth-filling presence on the palate, it offers velvety tannins and robust layers of blackberry and briar patch, with hints of brambly black raspberry emerging on the long, luxurious finish.
Production
While a cool, wet winter and spring on Mt. Harlan led to a late budbreak in our vineyards, moderate summer temperatures with no late-season heat events ensured that the fruit enjoyed abundant hangtime. Harvest began in late September and continued throughout October, resulting in elegant and age-worthy whites with lovely underlying power, and graceful and dynamic reds with complex layers of bright fruit and savory spice.
