Below is the March, 2006 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:




2001 Calera

Sellick Vineyard

Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir


2001 Calera Sellick Vineyard Mt. Harlan Pinot NoirCalera was founded in 1975 by Josh Jensen, who worked two consecutive harvests in Burgundy 1970 at the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, and 1971 at Domaine Dujac. He also worked the 1970 harvest at Chateau-Grillet in the northern Rhone Valley.

After a two year search for limestone-derived soil in California, Jensen located and purchased a rugged, remote property with a large limestone deposit near Hollister in the Gavilan Mountains of San Benito County. It is 90 miles south of San Francisco, 12 miles south of the town of Hollister, and 25 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. In 1975, he planted the three original Pinot Noir vineyards on Mt. Harlan, which he called Selleck, Reed and Jensen.

Map of Calera Winery

"Just a baby now, with all the promise and potential of young, well-made Pinot. Delicate flavors, with some power lurking beneath the surface. Raspberry, blackberry, mocha, vanilla, warm spices and more. Tempting now, but will certainly gain in complexity with aging." - Splurge Wine, 10/05

"Spicy and earthy, with hints of underbrush and stems, it is a Burgundian-styled Pinot with brooding richness and impressive potential, but it requires coaxing from the glass. There is plenty here, but it will benefit from aging. 90+ points." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
