Winemaker Notes

This evocative and sensual 2008 Jensen possesses a deep, round bouquet of black currant, spice and plum. On the palate it is silky and flowing; emanating flavors of boysenberry, tart black cherry, delightful soft oak undertones, a hint of dark chocolate and a gentle trace of mineral. It is an elegant, sophisticated, understated wine of great complexity with a rich, persistent and graceful finish.

COMMENTARY: How many of us have had the pleasure of tasting a wine with some bottle age? I have been fortunate in my years in the wine industry and have tried quite a few older wines. The 2008 Calera Jensen Vineyard is an amazing wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine starts and never stops. Its aromas and flavors of red fruit, fresh dirt, forest floor, and other nuances make it a perfect choice with aged Epoisses cheese accented with marc. (Tasted: September 10, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard bursts onto the palate with a rush of intensely perfumed fruit. It shows fabulous balance of fruit, structure and acidity as it covers the palate with dazzling purity and breathtaking sense of balance. A soft, caressing finish rounds things out in style. This is a super-refined showing from Josh Jensen. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

Wine Enthusiast
Sweet and jammy in youth, with robust flavors of raspberry and cherry jam. The sweetness is balanced by crisp acidity and firm tannins, as well as a minerality that must come from the terroir. A feminine wine, Calera's '08 Jensen should gain in the bottle over the next eight years or so.

Calera, California
Calera Mt. Harlan Vineyards Winery Image
Calera is a small ultra-premium winery located in the limestone-rich Gavilan Mountains, east of Monterey and south of Hollister, California. Josh Jensen planted Calera's first 23 acres of Pinot Noir in 1975. An additional 26.6 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Viognier were planted in the 1980s, and 33 more acres, mostly Pinot Noir but also some additional Chardonnay, in 1997 and 1998. All these parces are in the Mt. Harlan AVA that was created in 1990. Calera produces 8 single-vineyard wines from Mt. Harlan, as well as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from grapes purchased from selected vineyards in the Central Coast regions.

At elevations reaching well over 2,000 feet, the Mt. Harlan AVA in the Gabilan Range is an anomaly among its surrounding Central Coast appellations. Recognizing the splendor of the area and its ideal limestone-rich soils, Josh Jensen chose Mt. Harlan as the home of his Calera Wine Company in the 1970s. Awarded his own AVA in 1990, Calera is the only commercial winery in the appellation.
