Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Antonio Galloni - The 2009 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is the biggest and richest of the 2009s. It boasts stunning depth in its dark fruit, licorice, spices and sweet balsamic notes. Layers of fruit totally saturate the palate as this utterly majestic Pinot opens up in the glass. The sheer depth and nuance of the Jensen is simply breathtaking. Readers will have to be patient, as the Jensen is very much built for the cellar. It is an American classic to savor and enjoy to age 20 and perhaps beyond. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is a versatile red wine grape used to make some of the world's greatest wines. Depending on where it is grown, Pinot Noir can be earthy or fruity, light-bodied or heavy, pale garnet or deep red. In France, Pinot Noir produces fine red Burgundy and is one of the three grapes used in Champagne (the skins are removed prior to fermentation to produce blanc de noir or "white from red.") It is also considered the most diverse, food-friendly wine View all our additional Pinot Noir items

California
Since the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 California wines have unquestionably ranked among the best in the world. From the Anderson Valley in the North through Temecula Valley in the South, California vineyards grow dozens of wine grape varietals that produce wines of many different styles. The California wine industry has steadily gained ground since the 1960s (the industry took a major hit following Prohibition), but its roots date back over 200 years. Major grape varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. View all our items from California
