Tantara 2012 Rio Vista Vineyard Calera Clone Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

Single-clone wines can be less complex than clonal blends, but not in this case. The nose is dominated by anise, but the slightly bitter flavors are richer than Tantara's other Rio Vista Vineyard bottling, almost reminiscent of spicy beef goulash. Similarities do persist, though, such as the supple and suave mouthfeel, with an enduring finish. Matt Kettmann
