This 2014 Jensen vineyard Pinot Noir has a fabulous nose; beautiful integrated, seamless aromas of dark fruits, sweet oak, mineral, black cherry pie and mesquite. The texture is round and broad with many layers; the flavors are bright and perfumey, the structure is very fine grained and smooth. This wine is complete even so young, and promises a very long life ahead in the cellar.

Wine EnthusiastThis bottling by Josh Jensen shows sharp aromas of black plum and blackberry, with hints of lilacs. The palate combines a strong earthy quality with gravelly minerality, rose petals, lavender and dark cranberry fruit. Tannins are a bit rigid this early in this wine's life, so wait for the mellowing. Drink 2018-2034.
