Josh Jensen set the bar for cult Pinot Noir in California’s Central Coast in the early 70’s and his single vineyard offerings have topped some of the best Burgundies in the world in blind tastings, a true master at his craft. His Central Coast Pinot teams with, bing cherries, strawberries, raspberries. White pepper and baking spices add beautiful complexity to the nose. You will absolutely love this wine for the price it is hard to beat.
The 2017 Pinot Noir Central Coast comes from multiple vineyards throughout the Central Coast and has a touch of the elegance and purity found in the top cuvées. Impressive black raspberry fruits, white flowers, spice, and a subtle salty minerality all emerge from the glass, and it's beautifully textured, balanced, and just a joy to drink. It's well worth its going rate and should be snatched up by readers.
This blend from sites across the Central Coast carries all the expert hallmarks of the brand, from ripe fruit to earthy spice. Tightly wound aromas of pomegranate, berry, soil and star anise lead into a crisp yet savory palate of raspberry and deep cherry. Pinches of dried sage and thyme linger on the finish.
