2018 Antica Terra "Botanica" Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
Made by the legendary Maggie Harrison, formerly of Sine Qua Non.
"Botanica is an expression of the fecundity and fertility of the flora of this place. It tends towards sappy, sanguine, with a taste of wild rose, sour cherries, and blood orange. It is tempting to define it solely by its compelling texture and lush personality, but there is a structural element that is equally striking. This balance between extraordinary concentration and pronounced tension is the essence of the wine." -- Winery
