2012 Antica Terra Botanica Pinot Noir 1500ml

$349.99
1 available in stock.

Description:

The 2012 Pinot Noir Botanica is Maggie Harrison's more fruit-driven take on Pinot Noir, instigated after she noticed a difference with a small number of barrels in her debut 2007 vintage. It has more sappy, "sanguine" red fruit compared to the Botanica, to use her own vernacular. It has a very pure bouquet that offers gorgeous wilted violet and seaweed scents that combine beautifully with the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with notes of candied orange peel, dark plum, molasses and a hint of fennel. It is extremely well balanced with very fine acidity and real tension toward the finish. This is another outstanding wine from Antica Terra. Drink through 2030.  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
