Red | Pinot Noir | United States | California | 750ml
As the temperature rises in California’s central coast during the hottest hours of the day, the vineyards at 24 Knots are blessed with cool marine winds which sweep through at an unbelievable 30 miles per hour, which, in nautical terms, is equivalent to a speed of 24 knots, hence the name… This very structured and balanced wine offers aromas of strawberry and black cherry, accompanied by hint of toast. It has a vivid acidity and a long silky finish.

Red | Pinot Noir | United States | Sonoma Coast | 750ml
80% Sonoma Coast, 20% Russian River Valley. Aged 12 months in French Oak. This deep raspberry colored Pinot Noir stems from some of the best Pinot Noir vineyards in California found in the Sonoma Coast AVA. The wine's aromas are reminiscent of a fine Gevrey Chambertin in that it contains bright cherry fruit but is balanced over an earthy, leathery texture. Similarly, the palate unfolds with exotic spice flavors of tea leaf, clove and star anise and then folds daftly into rich and generous French oak lactone flavors and textures while maintaining its age-worthy acidity within.
"Dark and rich, showing toasty mocha oak flavors, with a beam of wild berry, raspberry, cola, vanilla and spice. Long on the finish. Drink now through 2020." Wine Spectator (92)
A light-bodied, very affordable Pinot Noir from Caiden's Vineyards, who pride themselves for producing small batches of quality wines vintage after vintage.
Winery Notes: Plum, pomegranate, pink rose petal, boysenberry and the slightest hint of watermelon candy dance from this 2011 Central Coast Pinot Noir. It's full of boysenberry and spicy cherries jubilee character with nice brightness and delightful flavors of black raspberry and sweet oak. A bit of tartness accents the soft, flowing texture and lively finish.
Wine Advocate 90 Points: 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.

2009 Pinot Noir is a bit more forward than prior vintages, leaning more to the black-fruit vs. red fruit side on both the nose and palate. The palate retains a fresh and focused acidity that complements the fine and subtle tannins.

Winery Notes:"Blending from four different vineyards in the Russian River appellation has given this fragrant Pinot Noir its focused, complex dark-berry, rose petal, mineral and earth character. A style with purity, delicacy and finesse. Barrel aging adds toffee nuances and silkiness on the palate."
Dark in color, ripe and complex, this shows wilted rose, ripe plum and blueberry flavors that are firm and deep, while maintaining its delicacy. Ends with firm, tealike tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2018.Wine Spectator
