The Calling is a collaboration between Jim Nantz the famous golf and sports commentator (who also happens to be a HUGE wine enthusiast) and importer Peter Deutsch. Fruit for this Pinot Noir was sourced from several locations in the Russian River Valley, each vineyard site contributing critical, unique aspects to the complexity of the resulting wine. Vineyards located in the warmer end of the Russian River Valley contribute ripe fruit elements. Vineyards from the cooler areas lend a strong minerality and structural backbone, and vines at altitude with sandy, well-drained soil add complexity and structure. The wine was aged in 35% new French oak for 11 months. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 91 points and said "A generously fruity, just-ripe and refined wine, this offers classic notions of the appellation in a warm, welcoming vintage, from rhubarb, cranberry and cherry to cola spice and clove. Still young, it shows an intensity that should meld and mellow in the bottle in short order." On Sale!
