“Readers looking for a classic, incredibly well made Pinot Noir to buy by the case should look no further than Josh’s 2014 Pinot Noir from the Central Coast AVA. Supple, sexy, seamless and elegant, with classic Calera notes of raspberries, mulled cherries, spice and dried soil, it has no hard edges, a core of sweet fruit and a beautiful finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. I’m sure it will keep for 4-5 years (probably longer), but there’s no need to delay gratification. Don’t miss this fabulous effort and bravo to the Calera team for delivering this level of quality at the price.”

“Josh Jensen’s relatively humble Central Coast bottling is particularly good in 2014. The fruit comes mostly from Monterey and Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, including blue-chip vineyards like Bien Nacido in Santa Maria Valley and Doctor’s in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Its plump, sunny texture and green edges cohere into a leafy red strawberry flavor that’s appetizing and refreshing, cool and warm at once.”
