An earthy, fleshy PN that is subdued in a good way. Excellent balance and restraint. Still evolving so it will put on weight and depth. Maggie is doing fantastic and unique things in Dundee.

Soft and terroir driven brown and elegant. Well balanced sour cherries truffles and barnyard. Perfect acidity and balance

Beautiful nuanced Pinot, quite complex and geeky!

2012 Antica Terre "Cerus" Pinot Noir - a unique Oregon Pinot Noir with balance, structure, terroir, great acidity and all the potential to age well over the next 8-10 years. Curious project, I'd like to taste others from their lineup and lay more of this one down. Drink now if you enjoy power, concentration and fruit - it's a sexy wine. Let it be for another 5yrs and the fun begins.

What a treat. It really started evolving an hour or so after opening. Recommend decanting.

WNH event number 3...new world Pinot. Such a treat to experience the many different variations of Pinot!

The most Burgundian styled Pinot of the night. I thought it was fantastic, and still has another few years to get even better. No candied notes, more underripe red fruit (cherry and rhubarb), potpourri, graphite on the nose. Acidity is great. Not quite lean, but not a fruit bomb Pinot. Sage and herbal. Awesome,

Showing bright and very youthful. Incredibly harmonious with soft red fruits, medium plus acidity and a long, lingering finish that goes for 30 seconds. Pretty wine.

Her pinots have so many layers of awesomeness (technical term). There is a warmth to it that never leaves even after a few hours open.

Light funk, savory nose. Soft Apple, raspberry, plum mid palate. Lengthy with moderately spiced finish
