2018 Antiquum Farms Pinot Noir Passiflora Willamette Valley

Compared to Antiquum's 2018 Juel and Luxuria Pinots, the Passiflora is a bit backward. That's not a criticism, just an observation. It is dark fruited and a bit reticent on the nose. The fruit is intense and dark fruited. Cherries, blackberries and a bit of strawberry. Firm tannins that need time to soften. Great acidity and balance. Finishes long, spicy and dark fruited. Best to wait on these 2 to 3 years. Should be spectacular. "A-" with an upside.
