Very perfumed nose has lots of spiced dark cherry fruit, along with a moist gravelly note. When first opened, it was round and polished-feeling in the mouth, but as it aired it tightened up and showed a lot more structure (tannin/acid). Flavors too are very perfumey and long. This is nice now and will age a few more years for sure. — 4 days ago
The wine I have opened tonight is the 2019 Division "Un" Pinot Noir.
The nos has notes of cranberry, strawberry, cherry, raspberry, cinnamon, clove, forest floor and earth.
On the palate I am getting notes of cherry, strawberry, cranberry, clove, cinnamon, spice, light oak and earthy undertones.
This wine is medium bodied with medium acidity and medium to medium + fine tannins that moves into a medium to medium + ftesh fruit finish. We are on the precipice of another weekend so please stay safe and healthy but enjoy the weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 19 days ago
This was a real treat to enjoy courtesy of @Bryan Kesting being in town, and since we both share an affinity for Antica Terra wines, he was kind enough to bring a 2012 Antikythera.
In the past month, I’ve had the 2012, 2015 and 2017, and this 2012 shows just how incredible these wines can age. I would say this is probably the most impressive OR Pinot I’ve had to date. So much balance here. On the nose, it is quite expressive with potpourri/red and purple floral notes and herb crusted black cherries. The palate is supremely balanced between the herbal/earth/clay like notes encapsulated by underripe red and black fruits and a kiss of sweetness...kirsch like? The core here nods to burgundy with structure. While I don’t think this gets any better, I do think it will cruise for years and evolve in to a somewhat different wine. Thanks again @Bryan Kesting for opening this! — 4 days ago
This Mineral Springs Ranch, Soter Vineyars, Pinot Noir just hits all the marks. Vintage 2017. ABV 13.8%.
This biodynamic wine is concentrated, complex, has good intensity, is well-balanced, and has a long, elegant finish. I could sip this beauty all night. — 3 days ago
Intense aromas of cherry, raspberry, overripe strawberry and some potting soil. The pallet is fluid with red fruit, and dried mushroom. Medium bodied, smooth, dry with lively acidity and a hearty finish. Lovely and complex Pinot Noir with tons of character paired with French onion soup. — 12 days ago
