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. - Antonio Galloni

Floral and savory notes meld into a core of open-knit fruit. Sensual and inviting, the 2008 has enough aromatic complexity to provide plenty of of interest, while the firm tannins suggest the 2008 will drink well for another decade-plus. This is one of the more delicate, gracious wines in this vertical. Like all the best Calera wines, the 2008 speaks to balance above all else.

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.
