Jensen :: 2011 Pinot Noir

3 bottle limit

2011 Jensen Vineyard Pinot Noir is a ballerina; graceful, subtly powerful, and delicate in an expansive way. Aromas of Bing cherry, soft sweet oak and the faintest whisper of watermelon accent the classic Jensen broad flavors of blackberry, cassis, herb, violets and mineral from this complex vineyard block planted with four different aspects to the sun. There’s an exquisite brightness, depth and suppleness of texture in this alluring and wonderful wine.

We had another cool year in 2011. The early spring was wet and cold delaying bud break by a few weeks. With colder summer temperatures averaging in the low 70’s we were forced to hang the fruit a month later than usual, but to our surprise the waiting brought us rich wines with bright acidity and lower sugars.

 

Each day’s picking became a separate lot up until shortly before bottling. Each was fermented by the action of native yeasts in small open top fermenters. Each lot was pressed 14 days after harvest, racked by gravity to French oak barrels, then aged without racking in those barrels, 30% new, for eighteen months. The lots were then combined and the resultant wine was bottled without filtration, as always.
