Wine Review: This medium ruby colored Pinot Noir from Calera opens with black raspberry, loam, and oak bouquet with hints of cinnamon, black cherry, and black tea. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, polished, and elegant. The flavors profile is a red plum and red cherry blend with notes of earthy minerality, bay leaf, and oak. We also picked up some hints of black tea and spice in the mix. The finish is dry and its moderate refined tannins drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with a filet mignon or a pork tenderloin. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: At more than 40 years old, the coveted old vines of Jensen Vineyard have produced a stunning wine that offers depth, elegance, and luxurious complexity. Aromas of wild strawberry, rhubarb, pomegranate, and black cherry leap from the glass beckoning a first sip. On the palate, the flavors turn deep and dark, with layers of blueberry, juicy blackberry, and cocoa building to a long, dramatic finish.
