2009 Antica Terra Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1064944 93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The medium ruby-colored 2009 Antica Terra proffers an alluring bouquet of smoke, rose petal, cherry, raspberry, and incense. Velvety-textured, ripe, and elegant on the palate, it reveals a laser focus and considerably more grip and concentration than is typical for this vintage. This lengthy effort can be approached now but will evolve for 1-2 years and provide enjoyment through 2019. In just a few years, Maggie Harrison has managed to place Antica Terra on my short list of Willamette Valley’s finest producers. The estate owns 11 acres of vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA and leases an 8 acre parcel from Shea Vineyards in Yamhill-Carlton. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

91 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Pungent aromas of black raspberry, cola, allspice and dried rose. Supple and sweet, with deep red and dark berry flavors complicated by notes of spicecake, vanilla and anise. Gently tannic on the finish, which leaves notes of berry skin, cola and smoke behind. This is delicious right now. Inner quote mark (8/2011)

K&L Notes

A richer Pinot Noir reflective of the vintage, the 2009 Antica Terra Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is also quite linear and compact. Aromas of blackberries and wild strawberries, foraged mushrooms and forest floor give way to a palate that is spicy, foresty and full of deep wild berry flavors. Give this air or some time in your cellar for more secondary notes to emerge.
