SOMMELIER PICK OF THE WEEK: 2014 Antica Terra “Botanica”
Sommelier Pick of the Week: 2014 Antica Terra “Botanica” Pinot Noir from Willamette, Oregon.
I met the Winemaker, Maggie Harrison, at West of the West in Sonoma, as well as the Oregon Chardonnay Celebration in Willamette and believe she does an excellent job. Her personality is warm and her wine is a great example of what Oregon Pinot Noir wines can be.
Botanica is firm and focused, with peppery overtones adding to the black cherry and licorice flavors, finishing with density but not excess weight.
Food Pairing Recommendations: Duck, Lamb, or other Game & Salmon.
