Antica Terra Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Antica Terra displays the richness of the vintage, but it is paler, detailed and more concise. Its flavors are from the forest: small wild berries, chanterelles, yellow leaves. This wine includes more fruit from our estate and two extreme sites closer to the coast. In 2009 the stems from these sites ripened to become russet, dense and woody.

Antica Terra is a rugged 40-acre parcel nestled in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of the Willamette Valley owned by Scott Andelson, John Mavredakis, Michael Kramer and Maggie Harrison. The vineyard sits on a gently sloping hillside and siltstone and formed from old alluvium - la antica terra. The vineyard was first planted to pinot noir in 1989. When we acquire4d it in 2005, we began developing twenty additional acres and worked to refine the varital mix and upgrade clone-rootstock combinations, to realize the property's full potential. Vine yields are kept low to develop concentrated flavors as well as to hasten ripening before the fall rains. The vineyard management practices we employ strive for an ecological balance between the vines and the surrounding oak savannah habitat, while emphasizing techniques that enliven the soil and nurture the overall health of the vineyard. It is our hope that the reverence we bring to the management and care of the Antica Terra Vineyard will allow winemaker, Maggie Harrison , to produce complex, distinctive and singular wines that express the unique character of this very special place.

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 berr... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 2009 Antica Terra Pinot Noir 750ml
