Chilensis reserva pinot noir review – WEB REDEMPTION

9 12 2010

Today we review a 2009 pinot noir from Chile that will cost you $9 at Total Wine.

This is a smoky yet juicy, leathery, slightly dry pinot noir.  Tasting it makes me think of those South American scenes at the end of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, even though that was Bolivia.  The arrow below points to the origin of this wine, Chile’s Maule Valley.

It smells great — like a box full of expensive spices AND high quality coffee cake — and it has a MANLY taste:  medium bodied, some tannins, and some dark fruit. 

And it utterly redeems the Chilensis name, after my recent encounter with this label’s carménère.  At this price, even at $13, Chilensis pinot noir is a no-brainer. 

I say, buy it.

Cheers!

I bought this wine for a friend, I loved it, I was surprised they liked it as it was not cocked, only a screw to open bottle.
