Cono Sur Reserva Especial Pinot Noir 2015
|Region||Chile, Casablanca Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Reserva Especial Pinot Noir, from a range that wants to showcase the different varietals in the place where they find they are best, was sourced from San Antonio, close to the Pacific Ocean. The vines are nine years old, planted on red clay and granite soils. The bunches were destemmed, but the grapes were not crushed and were put to ferment in open vats after a cold soak. It matured in second use French barriques for 11 months. I found some dry herb aromas, hints of a Mediterranean vintage intermixed with red fruit and spices. The palate is light to medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and moderate acidity.
Wine EnthusiastEarthy spicy aromas of tea and leather frame herbal berry and cherry notes. This has a fresh jumpy palate and snappy flavors of spiced pie cherry, plum and oak-based vanilla. A bit of saltiness rises up on a juicy, racy finish.
