Zorzal Terroir Único Pinot Noir, 2012, Mendoza, Argentina

11 Jan

DSC03175Intensely colored and aromatic, this is some incredible Pinot Noir out of Argentina, where they’re growing more and more of this finicky, difficult grape. This is an exceptional effort, with aromas of blackberries, strawberries and earth. Juicy and smooth on the palate, but with the piquancy one expects in good Pinot Noir. Great food wine, great cocktail wine, way better than most Argentine Pinot on the market. $15
