So far the only Cali Pinots I've genuinely liked. Wade Hostler from eBob visits Finland quite often and has been trying to educate me, but I still don't get them apart from Calera.

Nor do I ever think you will get them based on your preferences. You might enjoy Arcadian. They are big wines, but balanced and have a definite earth element.

What was the alcohol BTW on the Calera? I was surprised to learn that the ones I had were well over 14%. I have not had one other table wine taste balanced at this level.
