Antica Terra Pinot Noir Botanica 2014
JS97: "An extremely fine and polished wine with dried-strawberry and -cherry character. Full to medium body, ultra-refined tannins and a polished and beautiful finish. A complex and beautiful wine. So hard not to drink now, but this has an amazing future. Better in 2020." - James Suckling
Antica Terra is located on a rocky hillside in the Eola-Amity Hills in the Willamette Valley. Most of the vineyards are planted in young soils left behind by Missoula floods or volcanic events that formed the Cascade Range. The extremely unusual geography produces unique and instantly identifiable wines. Botanica is complex and beautiful with extraordinarily concentrated fruit and intense levels of extract.
