    January 9, 2016 - Ripe dark fruit, spice and undergrowth. Fruit with a savoury edge. Big but not flabby, backed by powdery tannin. Very enjoyable example of pinot at this end of the spectrum. (92 Very good wine)

    November 27, 2014 - Wow. This is one big Pinot. Drank over two days. Concentrated and intense, highly aromatic, with sweet dark fruits and spice trouncing all over a few herbal notes in the background. There is some mid palate depth and enough acid to keep this from being too sweet or flabby, but this wine just walked all over the duck we had. This vintage is really coming across as a cocktail wine to be drank on its own, rather than a food wine. It is tasty and pleasurable, but would possibly pair better if you considered it more like a Syrah. Day two- the entry and mid palate soften and lose a little energy, the acid continues to keep the wine in check. Still prefer this wine as a solitary drink on day two.

    September 28, 2014 - A lot of Wines at Tommy's Clambake (again) (Tommy K's.): This bottle had been open and poured at lunch, so this was now about 5 hours later when I tried it. The nose is deep and ripe. Spice and macerated cherries. Also some plums. Slight heat on the wine. It is very good with nice dark cherry fruit on the palate. Good finish. Can't see this improving from here and I would drink up sooner than later.

    (Antica Terra Pinot Noir) From Oregon’s riper “California vintage,” this spicy Pinot is all about silky fruit. It’s dark garnet in color, with candied plums, cherries, and smoky spice on the nose. On the palate, crushed raspberries mingle with noticeable acidity, blood-orange juice, nutmeg, leather, and minerals.

    (Antica Terra pinot Noir) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-very heavy manure action; classic poop/barnyard nose; opening up w/ some raspberries; TASTE-some bright fruit; I get a rose petal component; sour cherry on the mid-palate; some green garnish action; manure; dominated by cherries afterwards; some raspberry; little tobacco leaf on the back-end; forest floor; nice mouthfeel; very smooth & elegant; missing a little on the mid-palate; solid, but a little forgettable; JR-90; GV-88
