This pale pinot has very lifted, bizarre but still distinctly Chilean nose rife with green/evergreen notes. It's a...

Decidedly funky, with curious lactic, wild cherry liqueur, wood spice and crushed green leaf-type aromas - an unusual...

Yeasts gone wild! Good acidity and spice. This wine was super earthy. It was quite unusual. I wasn't a huge fan of the finish but overall, a curious example of Pinot Noir from Chile. I'd try it again.

Tasted May 2012. Far from the best example of a Pinot Noir that I've had, but a little interesting in its own right. A bevy of earthy and herbaceous notes dominate and give an overall impression of having consumed a mouthful of dried leaves and other things found in the hedge whilst chewing on a stick of beef jerky. Definitely a bit of cherry trying to sneak through, but muted by the wild earthy overtones. Note the best value wine, but worth a try for something a little off the beaten path.

Well I don't think it's faulty but egatz this is raunchy smelling stuff. Aromas of raw meat, leather, and musk. A bitter, dry finish follows a medium body of cherry, red currants, and spiced notes. I can think of a dozen Chilean wines for half the price that out perform this example. Tasted Jan 2012.
