The 2012 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard hits the palate with a rush of fruit. Intense, layered and voluptuous in the glass, the 2012 boasts gorgeous mid-palate depth and pliancy. Raspberry jam and bluish-hued fruit come forth in abundance. The Jensen is bold, racy and pungent today. Of course, much of that forward personality will soften with age as the aromatics develop, but I expect the Jensen will always be a relatively overt Pinot. There is more than enough tannin and structure underpinning the fruit to suggest the Jensen will drink well for another 10-15 years, perhaps longer. This is the most opulent of the Calera 2012s.
