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.

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.

Cinnamon is strong with this one. Soft & fluid texture, cool earth & minty finish.

Red raspberry aromas and a bit of bay leaf and mint. Stewed rhubarb, olalliberries and a touch of animale. Lively acidity. Could use a bit more time to pull it all together.

Raspberries, cola and tanned leather. A bit angular in its youth.
