Enjoy it now, or cellar for up to 15 years. Decanting is optional, up to 30 minutes before serving.

Since its founding in 1974, Calera winery has paved the way for Pinot Noir in California. After spending years working in Burgundy, the winery’s late founder Josh Jensen sought a limestone-rich area in California, where the delicate grape could thrive. He eventually discovered Mount Harlan, a peak between San Benito and Monterey counties, which would become Calera’s home.

At an average elevation of 670 metres, Mount Harlan’s vineyards are among the highest and coolest sites in California. Jensen Vineyard is one of the oldest and the origin of this deeply rewarding Pinot Noir. The vineyard is planted with 40-year-old vines, on four bulbous hills on the side of Mount Harlan, each bringing a different aspect to this wine's complexity.

It is made from 100% Pinot Noir and packed with delicious aromas of ripe plum, intense black fruit, cedar and hints of spice. It is light in the body but rich in flavour, with a resounding finish. The palate is fruity and lush, providing concentrated notes of cranberry, black cherry and oak, with an umami mushroom undertone. It spent 18 months ageing in French oak barrels. The Jensen Vineyard Pinot Noir is a perfect pairing for a tender Wagyu steak, mushroom sauce, or a rich salmon dish.
