Blend: 100% Pinot Noir

Alcohol: 14.6%
95 POINTS - "Deeper ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir De Villiers Vineyard reveals more black raspberry, sassafras, tea, and spicy notes. It's medium-bodied, with a juicy, elegant style and a great finish." - Jeb Dunnuck

94 POINTS - "This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Calera opens with a fragrant black cherry jubilee and strawberry bouquet with a hint of Play-Doh. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and smooth. The flavor profile is a black raspberry and black cherry blend with notes of green tea. We also detected hints of flinty minerality. The finish is dry and dusty moderate tannins stick around for a while. The Panel noted that this Pinot benefited from some aeration. " - Ken's wine Guide

92 POINTS - "Roasted boysenberry, crushed stone, baked earth and a slight plum-skin tang show on the nose of this bottling from vines planted in 1996. There's a warm-weather sense on the palate, where cooked berry flavors dominate, yet the acid and rocky tension keep it complex and intense." - Wine Enthusiast
Once again, de Villiers Vineyard has yielded one of Mt. Harlan’s most luxurious and robust Pinot Noirs, with deep, penetrating flavors of ripe plum, black cherry and cassis. As it unfurls, the wine reveals beautiful underlying complexity, with fine-grained tannins and hints of white pepper, sassafras and cigar box lingering on the finish.
