2014 Calera de Villiers Vineyard Pinot Noir, Mount Harlan, USA (750ml)
One of the highlights in this range, the 2014 Pinot Noir de Villiers Vineyard is absolutely gorgeous. Deep, pliant and exquisitely layered, the 2014 possesses exceptional finesse. The purity of the fruit here is striking. Dark red cherry, plum, violet and lavender are some of the many nuances that flesh out in the glass. The 50% whole clusters are barely perceptible. In 2015, the de Villiers is all finesse. - Antonio Galloni, 95 pts
Very dark in the glass, this drought-hammered bottling (from a yield of just two-thirds of a ton per acre!) shows deep and concentrated black plum, black currant and licorice aromas but retains the wild thyme and dark mint character typical of Central Coast Pinot Noir. The palate combines richness with strong acidity, its concentrated black cherry fruit cut with tart plum skin notes. - Wine Enthusiast, 93 pts
