2017 Calera Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard...$99.99
My favorite in the lineup, the 2017 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is stunning in every way. Gorgeous black raspberry fruits, lots of floral, scorched earth, and sappy herb aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness, flawless balance, and a great finish all make for one of the most captivating Pinot Noirs in the vintage. It's brilliant today yet should easily evolve for 15 years or more.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is powerful and tightly wound today. That won't be an issue in a few years of course, but readers have to be patient. Star anise, cinnamon, dried rose petal, blood orange and mint give the Jensen an exotic feel that is impossible to miss. Deep and layered on the palate, the Jensen has plenty of depth, but the tannins need time to soften. I hope to taste this in another few years' time. The collection of three blocks in a sort of amphitheater yields a Pinot of real distinction.
