A true Pinot Noir rock star is the 2007 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard. From a 13.8-acre vineyard planted in 1975, and cropped at 1.46 tons of fruit per acre, the Jensen cuvee spent 17 months in Francois Freres cooperage, of which 30% was new. One of the bigger production efforts (1,113 cases), it exhibits a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a sweet, explosive nose of ripe raspberries, black cherries, spice box, earth, and chalk. Deep, rich, and full-bodied, it is the sexiest, most seductive wine of all these 2007 Pinots. (RP)
The 2007 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is one of the more fruit-driven, open-knit wines in this vertical. Juicy and up-front, the 2007 is drinking well today and should continue to hold for at least another decade. The style is forward and silky, with soft tannins that add to an overall impression of creaminess. Readers who enjoy more mature Pinots might want to give the 2007 a few more years in bottle, as is still quite young. (AG) 94+
Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of raspberry and blackberry preserves, potpourri, allspice and mocha, with bright minerality adding vivacity. Sappy, penetrating red berry compote flavors are given spine by zesty acidity and become spicier with air. An exotic candied rose note carries through an impressively long, juicy and precise finish. This is delicious now but balanced to reward patience. (JR)
