Attractive, sappy and complex pinot aromas here with an array of roses and red cherries, as well as woody spices. This delivers an ultra-silky and concentrated palate with quite pure red fruit and a long, flavorsome and richly fleshy finish. Drink or hold.

Antica Terra’s 2011 Pinot Noir Ceras – the inaugural vintage for this cuvee, or at least under this name – is blended with a nose for achieving (in Harrison’s words) “minerality and delicacy, (and something) more herbal than floral. We do the blending completely blind,” she adds, “and only then discover which sites and lots we chose.” Close to half of the fruit for this 2011 came from Antica Terra; 20% from Shea; and the balance from Cherry Grove and Highland. Strongly marrowy as well as smoked meat characteristics vie with vintage-typically tart-edged sour cherry and red currant, black tea and toasted oak resin adding additionally smoky nuances. Firm in feel and persistently satisfyingly juicy, this draws on fruit pits, toasted shrimp shells and iodine for piquant finishing counterpoint and mouthwatering savor.
