Harlan Estate

Napa Valley Proprietary Red Blend 2012

The 2012 Harlan Estate is a simply fabulous showing from this vintage. This stunning red instantly impresses with its gorgeous pure aromas of fresh ripe blackberries and blueberries, which are woven together with savory herbs, crushed violets mocha and a dusty earthy mineral character that all take shape and burst from the glass. Full-bodied and voluptuous, this majestic red is plush and beautifully structured with well-polished tannins that are seamlessly integrated. This goes on to impress as it displays a remarkable combination of balance and concentration, along with a core of beautiful sweet ripe dark fruits that continue to build up to the long, opulent finish. While the 2012 is already showing incredibly well and is nothing short of sensational today, this is ultimately still a youthful wine that should continue to cruise in the cellar and age gracefully for decades. — 25 days ago

Mt. Harlan Viognier 2016

Seminal summer wine. For real. Almonds, apricot and crushed violet in the nose, complimented with minerals and round citrus in the mouth. I could subsist on the finish alone, but then the bottle would go bad. There's a reason Calera is my favorite domestic vintner. — a month ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

The inaugural vintage that was never released to the public. I was fortunate enough to taste this wine today. It was a baby. It is a testament to how these wines are made and the vision of the Harlan family with this project. — 2 months ago

de Villiers Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Located in the limestone-rich Gavilan Mountains, east of Monterey. Josh Jensen planted Calera's first 23 acres of Pinot Noir in 1975. De Villiers, planted in 1997 on east-facing slopes high on Mt. Harlan. Third year of drought conditions lowered the yield in ‘14, aged for 20 months in new French oak (30% new). Intense aromas of dark berry fruits with rustic spice. Palate shows tart blackberry and dark cherry flavors with smoky tobacco, oak and subtle spice. Tight tannins, lingering complex ending, very nice. — a month ago

Ryan Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Still holding up with enough tannins to make the cherries, raspberries, smokey flavors meld and soften over time. — a month ago

Plenty of forest floor and minerals balance the fruit. Bottle age has improved this. — a month ago
