Named after its once pedestrian purpose, the vineyard was named "Calesa" which means "stagecoach" in Spanish. Long ago, this site, (featuring expansive views of the Pacific), served as a resting stop for horse drawn carriages. Calesa vineyard sits in the "wind gap" or coastal mountain opening where direct coastal wine and cooler temperatures provide optimal growing conditions for Pinot Noir.
Pale to medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Calesa Vineyard is scented of cranberry, rhubarb, wood smoke, earth and cola. The medium-bodied palate offers good concentration of earthy fruits with a grainy frame, good freshness and long, spicy finish. 200 cases produced.
