Vital Vineyards Antica Terra 07 Pinot Noir 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): ...medium ruby-colored with an alluring perfume of cinnamon, allspice, incense, cherry, and raspberry. This leads to a medium-bodied, elegant wine with excellent depth and concentration, a silky texture, and incipient complexity. This lengthy effort will provide pleasure from 2011 to 2019. (Oct 2009)

Our Story   Vital Wines produces wines that complete a circle.  All proceeds go to the SOS Clinic, a free, non-profit health care clinic in the Walla Walla area dedicated to helping people get the healthcare that they both need and deserve with no questions asked.  Winemaking and vineyard work is both physical and seasonal, making it a prime industry for this kind of care.  For us at Vital it is not only our mission to close this loop, but also our pleasure.  Those that provide us with beautiful wines throughout the Walla Walla valley can get better and free healthcare and those of us who bring these wines home can do so with pleasure on the palate and the soul.     Thank you,   Ashley Trout; Winemaker and Tim Doyle; Assistant Winemaker Read less

Smells bizarely medicinal with candied anise seed, arugula, root beer, cola and watermelon but it works! Nicely balanced in the mouth with a natural if slightly fleshy feel. Not a fruit driven style but with excellent depth and persistence and a clean earthy finish. Give this a year for the oak to integrate and then enjoy 2010-2017 92pts

    RP gave it 92 pts. I disagree. Great nose, but the palate doesn't deliver on what the nose starts. It's a weak pinot, far too mellow for me. Just OK. -Tasted at Marché Bacchus 11/14/09

    Very pretty nose, with sweet red cherries and some tobacco, following to the palate. Not released yet (3/9/09 release date), this wine is definitely going to be a winner!

    Willamette Valley, OregonAntica Terra Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is a gorgeous red wine gem from Oregon! Winemaker Maggie Harrison worked at Sine Qua Non from 1998 to 2006. This bottling is the second vintage produced from a 40-acre property the winery purchased in 2005. Antica Terra is one of the best Oregon Pinots weve tasted. Indeed, Jay Miller of Wine Advocate rated it 92 points. It wont remain an undiscovered secret for long!Antica Terra Pinot Noir is dark ruby red in color with an aromatic nose of raspberry, blueberry, cinnamon and smoke. It has medium-full body, bright acidity and rich concentration with a velvety texture and flavors of blackberries, raspberries, vanilla and spices. It will drink beautifully now and over the next 7-9 years. The finish is long, rich and lingering.Enjoy Antica Terra Pinot Noir with roast pork, grilled salmon, ratatouille and aged cheeses.
