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.
