    December 29, 2018 - As I read some of the other notes the one theme that rings true for me is air time.

    PnP and enjoyed right away. Nose had the signature Antica Terra red fruits and funky earth which is very enjoyable. A tad disjointed on first attack but as this sat in the glass it opened up. Red fruits, earthy and hints of clove and oak spices.

    Day 2 this wine was amazing. So lush and integrated. All of the funky earth elements were more subdued and the red fruits were back in primary position. Medium ++ in body with great fruits and spices on the finish.

    Drinking very well with additional air time. Just a gorgeous wine.

    December 22, 2018 - The 2012 is dark and brooding, immediately evident from the first sniff of cloves and pepper. The wine features a sappy texture with flavors of lavender, blackberry extract, baking spices, and a small amount of leftover oak. This still needs a few years to completely come together, but the raw materials are pretty promising 6 years out. If you are going to pop now then I recommend a couple hours of air before drinking.

    November 18, 2018 - Prior bottle was 16 months ago and if anything, this one showed just a touch better/slightly more youthful. Black cherry and raspberry along with spices and earth on the nose. The longer it was open, the more expressive the nose became, starting to also show some of the red berry/red cherry notes I recalled from my past bottle. Between medium and full bodied and opened about three hours ahead of time. All blackfruited elegance at first with black cherry and black raspberry, along with a brighter blackberry upfront. Mid-body was exactly what I recalled from my prior bottle: density and silky elegance. Began to pix up some contrasting red fruit notes in the background here: red cherry and red berry. Good acidity, nicely structured tannins and balanced spices notes on the back. Based on where the fruit and acidity are today, this still feels like it can continue to improve with more cellar time and isn't yet at peak. I should've bought much more of this wine when I had the chance considering how much more it goes for now. With one bottle left, I will save it for November 2019.

    September 22, 2018 - Popped and poured. Wine was expressive upon opening but improved with time. Nice red cherry on the palate, with a little funk. Typical OR Pinot, but a little more. Lean, but not overly lean. Very good.
