    Winemaker's Notes:

    This beautiful Chardonnay is just a baby with a long, full life ahead, yet is captivating now with its bouquet of pippin apple, Meyer lemon, mandarin and vanilla cream. It glides across your palate with sensual softness, lively tartness and firm structure all at once. The spice and minerality underscore a hint of light caramel and white peach custard, then trail off slowly and gracefully.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Chardonnay Mt. Harlan shows the pedigree these hillside sites planted in 1984 and 1998 are capable of. This is a beautifully balanced, harmonious wine that captures the exuberant side of Chardonnay in its expressive tropical fruit, buttery notes and spices, while never losing its essential minerality, focus and drive. The 2010 shows fabulous freshness all the way through to the finish. I loved it. This is yet another great showing from Calera.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Vivid yellow-gold. Musky aromas of pear skin, fresh pineapple and lees are lifted by a spicy nuance. Dry, juicy and expansive, with intense flavors of citrus and orchard fruits, anise and iodine. Shows a suave blend of richness and vivacity and finishes smoky, spicy and long. There's something vaguely Meursault-like going on here.
