2014 Diana's Chardonnay

Diana's Chardonnay and Niclaire Pinot Noir are our highest acheivements in winemaking only guaranteed to members of the Jensen Reserve Society. These wines are a selection of the best barrels from our entire vintage hand-picked by our winemaking team. 

Diana's Chardonnay is named after co-owner, Diana Jensen representing the Testarossa (named after co-owner, Rob Jensen) family legacy that threads all of our winery. Our Niclaire Pinot Noir is named for the children, Nick & Claire Jensen. 

Medium straw hue. Engaging scents of fig, apricot, peach, kiwi, and passionfruit comprise the main aroma profile. With some swirling, notes of grapefruit, tangerine, honey, and vanilla bean come into play. With this ‘best of the best’ selection of barrels, the profiles of all our unique appellations show immediately, with the Santa Lucia Highlands showing more after swirling. The flavor array is near identical to the aroma profile, displaying precision in winemaking and blending. This offering exhibits great structure, complexity, and careful use of French oak. There is a multi-layered, long and pleasurable finish. Enjoy now through 2025.
