Review:

This is a mind-bender of a Pinot. Incredibly luxurious and velvety, this is a special and truly unique Pinot noir. Other-worldly complexities in both aroma and flavor, displaying an exuberant regal character with a flare for showmanship. From the moment I first smelled it I was convinced we needed to buy it for the club. Given the ridiculously small production of under 50 cases, this is an exclusive for club members and sadly, not available for re-order. While I typically do not like sending wines to the club that can't be re-ordered, the exquisiteness of Passiflora outweighs any downsides. - Marcus

93 points from the Pinotphile: 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.

From the winery: "We featured the most delightful oddities of Antiquum Farm in our Passiflora Reserve. The signature of the vineyard is a balance achieved, not in the center, but rather by the site’s unusual ability to achieve abundant maturity of fruit while experiencing little loss of acidity.

Downright inky color testifies to the intensity of Antiquum Farm fruit. An electrifyingly floral nose with passion fruit and blood orange leap from the glass and demand your attention. Candied dark red and blue fruit, spice and savory forest character lurk beneath the precocious tropical citrus and floral notes. Profound and luxuriously ripe fruit framed on fruit driven tannin and vivacious acidity. Multi-layered, long long finish. Too much fun!"
