2014 Niclaire Pinot Noir

Niclaire Pinot Noir and Diana's Chardonnay 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. 

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

Deep red color. This youthful Pinot Noir exhibits beautiful tension between bright red fruit and spice. The tension unravels in the form of red cherry, pomegranate and cranberry, which are paired nicely with cloves, custard, anise, and vanilla bean. The youthfulness sails seamlessly into the palate, lending this wine to many years of graceful aging. The lush tannins pleasure the palate while the vibrant acidity cleanses the senses. This multi-vineyard blend ends beautifully with a lingering, smooth, and decadent touch. Enjoy now through 2026.
