The nose is reminiscent of fresh wild fruit, tart plum, with notes of damp forest, and flowers. Its time spent in lightly toasted French oak lends a spicy, sweet edge, like pastry, with notes of vanilla, nutmeg, and jam. On the palate, it is beautifully balanced, with a light to medium body and vibrant acidity. An elegant and complex wine that shows that when it comes to Chilean Pinot Noir, there's a lot to say!

Briary plum and red berry aromas come with side notes of tea, wood spice, savory herbs and iron. On the palate, this is a touch thick and resiny, but healthy acidity cuts through the wine's natural ripeness. Spiced plum flavors are a touch oaky, while this is dry and firmly tannic on a finish where complex notes of salt, tomato and black tea surface.

Aconcagua Costa makes this cloned Pinot Noir (777), harvested in mid-March with one-third whole bunches and one-third frozen grapes. Fairly light red in color. The nose is dominated by cherries and strawberries over a bed of herbs and damp earth. Luxurious (3.22 grams of sugar) with balanced freshness and mellow tannins.
