Winemaker's Notes

"A spectacular young Pinot Noir (one of the greatest New World Pinots I have tasted), the 1999 Jensen Vineyard boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as a phenomenal bouquet of black raspberry, cherry, currant, white flower, and forest floor scents. Dense and full-bodied, it is explosive on the palate yet neither heavy nor overdone.
