93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Pinot Noir Central Coast comes from multiple vineyards throughout the Central Coast and has a touch of the elegance and purity found in the top cuvées. Impressive black raspberry fruits, white flowers, spice, and a subtle salty minerality all emerge from the glass, and it's beautifully textured, balanced, and just a joy to drink. It's well worth its going rate and should be snatched up by readers. (Sep 2020)"

92 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "[$30 list] Aged 10 months in 10% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Central Coast has a pale to medium ruby color and open, inviting aromas of wild blackberries, oolong tea leaves, dried cranberries and cherries with touches of underbrush, charcuterie, dried flowers and earth. The palate is light to medium-bodied with a firm, finely grained frame and earth-laced fruits, finishing with lovely freshness and spice. Drink: 2020-2023. (Feb 2020)"

90 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$30 list] Calera's 2017 Pinot Noir (Central Coast) has come together beautifully over the last year. Spice, dried tart cherry, cedar and mint give the 2017 striking aromatic presence to match its mid-weight personality. Sweet, perfumed and expansive on the palate, the Central Coast Pinot is a real joy to taste today. This is a notable level of quality for a wine that offers both good value and that is relatively easy to find. Drink: 2020-2024. (Sep 2020)"

Producer notes: "Made from a handful of the finest vineyards on the Central Coast, this lush and vibrant Pinot Noir displays alluring layers of blackberry jam, red cassis and Bing cherry, underscored by hints of wild game and pennyroyal that add nuance and complexity to a long, focused finish."
