"Calera's 2011 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is showing beautifully today. Intensely aromatic and light on its feet, the 2011 is all finesse. Sweet herbs, rose petals, hard candy, mint and spices form a super-appealing fabric of aromas and flavors. Today, the 2011 Jensen is gracious, light on its feet and absolutely impeccable in its balance. There is a lot to like here, that is for sure. Just beginning to show the first signs of aromatic development, the 2011 should continue to drink beautifully for another decade-plus. The 2011 has really come together over the last few years. Winemaker Mike Waller adds that the lessons of 2010 made 2011 less of a shock, and that in the end the growing season turned out to be quite normal, but with everything pushed back a month. What a gorgeous wine the 2011 has turned out to be. -AG"
