2007 Calera Jensen Pinot Noir

SKU #500320

Jensen Pinot Noir has gorgeous ruby color and a perfumed bouquet of dark plum, briar spice, cranberry and tiny pinches of both anise and orange zest. A restrained slate minerality and subtle smokiness pull us into a palate of mouthwatering black cherry and dark spice. This wine is restrained, yet bright, flavorful, juicy, graceful and persistent. As is typical of Jensen vineyard Pinots, a bit of patience will be richly rewarded. There's a 6 bottle limit Per-Order.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: A true Pinot Noir rock star is the 2007 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard. From a 13.8-acre vineyard planted in 1975, and cropped at 1.46 tons of fruit per acre, the Jensen cuvee spent 17 months in Francois Freres cooperage, of which 30% was new. One of the bigger production efforts (1,113 cases), it exhibits a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a sweet, explosive nose of ripe raspberries, black cherries, spice box, earth, and chalk. Deep, rich, and full-bodied, it is the sexiest, most seductive wine of all these 2007 Pinots. A round, generous, intense red that cascades over the palate with no hard edges, it is capable of 15-20 years of cellaring. This may be the strongest group of wines Calera has produced in many years. From their less expensive whites through the generic and single vineyard Pinot Noirs, this remarkable portfolio showcases this idiosyncratic terroir isolated on Mt. Harlan. For starters, Calera has once again made the finest Aligote in America.
This 2007 Jensen Pinot Noir has a brilliant ruby color and an inviting, deep brooding nose of cassis and black cherry with softly integrated oak spice. A startling streak of mid-palate sweet strawberry fruit is accented by signature Mt. Harlan limestone graphite, cranberries and a tiny hint of vanilla. Fine grained tannins, great concentration, stealth richness & depth, and beautiful balance lead to a firm but lingering, delicious finish.
