2018 Calera Jensen Vineyard Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

14.7% alc., $100. Calera selection. Whole cluster fermented, native yeast. Aged in French oak barrels, 30% new. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. The nose rises up over time revealing wonderful aromas of dark berries, plum, dried beef, clay and wine cellar. Inviting flavors of purple grape and pomegranate framed by supportive fine-grain tannins and a good cut of acidity. The finish is drenched in ripe dark fruits and is amazingly long. The fruit is definitely ripe but not overly mature. Even better when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle when some spice shows up and the long finish continues to amaze. Very age worthy. Score: 95. Reviewed September 19, 2021
