From Casa Julia, this is one of the better, more varietally correct Pinot Noirs Chile is making. The nose is dry, leathery and earthy, with a punch of cherry. The dried red fruit on the palate is intense and gritty, with racy acidity ensuring a brisk feel. Imported by T. Edward Wines Ltd.
Bright but tart cherry and blackberry flavors are swathed in dusty tannins; the nose offers similar berry and plum aromas. It’s a little acidic, but finishes with nice dusty-plum flavors.
