Calera Pinot Noir Jensen Vneyard 2008

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2008 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard bursts onto the palate with a rush of intensely perfumed fruit. It shows fabulous balance of fruit, structure and acidity as it covers the palate with dazzling purity and breathtaking sense of balance. A soft, caressing finish rounds things out in style. This is a super-refined showing from Josh Jensen. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. (AG) (8/2011) 94 points Vinous The 2008 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is another very pretty and expressive wine. Floral and savory notes meld into a core of open-knit fruit. Sensual and inviting, the 2008 has enough aromatic complexity to provide plenty of of interest, while the firm tannins suggest the 2008 will drink well for another decade-plus. This is one of the more delicate, gracious wines in this vertical. Like all the best Calera wines, the 2008 speaks to balance above all else. (AG) (9/2015) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Bright red. Very expressive aromas of raspberry, Asian spices, cola and potpourri, with a touch of licorice adding depth to the nose. Penetrating and precise, with energetic red berry and bitter cherry flavors staining the palate. Silky tannins add grip and structure to the very long, spicy, sharply focused finish. Offers a suave marriage of power and vivacity and drinks surprisingly well right now. (JR) (11/2011)
