2015 Calera Jensen Vineyard Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., 495 cases, $90. Vineyard planted in 1975. Yield 0.44 tons per acre. Aged 17 months in French oak barrels, 30% new, 10% second vintage and 60% neutral. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Enticing aromas of black cherry, exotic spices and underbrush. The first taste tells you this wine is special. The mid weight essence of black cherry fruit is long and intense, yet refined. The fine-grain tannins provide the perfect backdrop and the satiny texture is mesmerizing. The finish offers a good grip of acidity and uncommon generosity. This wine is always the Prima Donna among the Calera wine stable. Score: 96. Reviewed June 9, 2018
