2011 Antica Terra Pinot Noir Botanica

Community Tasting Note


88 Points

Sunday, November 17, 2013 - While a large portion is from Shea with a bit of AT and Old School Vineyard, darker red fruits, savory almost beef stocky minerality, and hints of earth and herbs I would have guessed Eola Amity. On the nose floral and savory elements. Still a bit astringent with tannin and acid given the size and power comes across as a bit extracted and gives it that white pepper feel while remaining light to medium bodied and light in color. Even though this is the bigger of the AT releases and more friendly, it still needs time from such a cool vintage. Unfortunately lacking in delicacy. A bit brutish with the oak.
