2016 Calera Pinot Noir Mt. Harlan- Jensen Vineyard
The prized 1975 plantings of Jensen Vineyard have yielded a gorgeous Pinot Noir that strikes a seamless balance between lushness and finesse. On the nose, aromas of ripe red cherry, cedar and black raspberry rise from the glass, followed by hints clove and spice. The palate is silky and generous, with abundant layers of ripe fruit gliding to a vibrant and lingering finish.
Strong aromas of black cherry and Christmas spice are plump on the nose, while the palate is minty and earthy, combining sagebrush, raspberry and cranberry flavors. From a brand that was recently purchased by Duckhorn, this is a complex, layered wine.
