Wine Enthusiast 90 points - This is plush and tasty, with lots of fresh, ripe fruit flavors verging on sweet, but it also has great acidity and appetizing tannins to rein in all that flavor and achieve balance. The flavors resemble raspberry, ripe red cherry and a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s medium to full bodied, dry and finishes with a nice tartness.
Wine Advocate 89 points - Calista’s 2012 Pinot Noir exhibits notes of plums, blackcurrants and cherries as well as sweet tannin, medium body and an alluring, sensual texture. Drink this lovely Pinot over the next 4-5 years.
