Calera Jensen Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

An amazing and expansive bouquet of deep plum, boysenberry, bay leaf, ripe blackberry and tarragon lead into a high-toned and layered mouthful of flavors; mineral, French prune, star anise, cassis, violets, sandalwood, dried basil and cinnamon. This 2010 Jensen is rich, savory, concentrated and smooth, with a floral hint, gorgeous balance and tight finish promising a long life ahead.

Wine EnthusiastThere's a delicacy to this Pinot that makes it a welcome alternative to the big, clumsy style. The color is translucent, and the alcohol is relatively low, giving it a nice, bouncy mouthfeel. The depth of flavor is impressive, suggesting ripe forest raspberries and cherries, and a hint of mushrooms. It would be a pity to drink this wine before 2017.

Wine SpectatorFirm and aromatic, showing a spicy, tannic edge to the texture. Very tight, with a gripping minerality on the finish. Begs for cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2024. 1,072 cases made.
