    September 23, 2016 - North Shore Weekend; 9/22/2016-9/24/2016 (North Shore, MN): Very dark red color. PNP, drank 1+ glass on day 1 and 1+ glass on day 2. This was still a bit wrapped up on day one. The nose was smoky and woodsy with lots of spice and a gorgeous forest floor note. The palate was fim and showed brooding black fruits and brisk tannins. Day two found this rounding up considerably. The palate saw the tannins ease up and soften and the fruit become more focused and brighter, still dark with some sauvage and animal notes. Medium length, still fairly dry. This is still quite young and I'd give this another 2 years ideally.

    September 22, 2016 - Very good Oregon pinot with oily nose/taste. Not my favorite but clearly burgundian style.

    July 8, 2016 - PNP. Nose was open. Palate was not. Drank over four hours and it didn't budge much at all. Seems like the stuffing is there, just needs more time.

    March 25, 2016 - Has a little earth initially, but berry notes with mostly cherry on the nose. Great wine that opens up after an hour. Definitely hang on to this one a bit

    November 29, 2015 - Consumed over 3 days (vacuvined), note from day 3. Nose: Medium expressiveness, pine needles, blueberry, cherry, lavender, and hints of cinnamon and earth. Palate: Medium-full bodied, sweet blue fruit and spice attack, definite mid-palate persistence, and great front to back harmony - no rough edges here. Finish: Lengthy sense of sweet blue fruit and acidic driven pine needle flavors. This held up remarkably well over 3 days, speaks volumes to what Maggie is doing here at Antica Terra.
