Antica Terra Antikythera Pinot Noir 2014

Antikythera is made entirely from our own little, rocky vineyard in the northernmost part of the Eola-Amity Hills. The wine, like the site, is a bit of an anomaly - it tends to defy characterization. There is, in every vintage, an astonishingly extreme, high-pitched aroma of cinnamon-stick coupled with a non-fruit intensity and Barolo-like tannin that speak neither to the Willamette Valley nor in some ways, pinot noir. Intensely mineral, it bears, somehow, a seemingly synesthetic resemblance to the ground from which it was born.

Deep red. Sexy, intensely perfumed cherry pie, boysenberry and floral pastille aromas are complemented by suggestions of cola, incense and Asian spices. Palate-staining red and blue fruit preserve, rose pastille and spicecake flavors convey a deft blend of power and nerviness thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The floral quality comes back emphatically on a strikingly long, sappy finish shaped by smooth, fully absorbed tannins.
