2012 Antiquum Farm Passiflora Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 45 cases, $55. Aged in 60% new French oak. · Very dark reddish purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with scents of spiced marionberries, rose petal and vanillin oak. Deeply flavored with a full monty of blackberry and marionberry fruits that are beautifully offset by the generous oak treatment and fine-grain tannins. An engaging wine of uncommon presence that has a juicy cut of acidity in the background. This wine has all the components for a long life ahead. My only nit is the sense of alcoholic heat on the finish. Score: 93. Reviewed July 6, 2014
