Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Punta Negra is a single vineyard Pinot Noir located at 1,500 meters at the foot of the Andes. After a double grape selection, it is aged in an old cask dating from 1948, which I presume is still under warranty from its original maker, one Mr. Alfonso. It has a very natural nose of red currant, cranberry and baked cherry that is beautifully defined and full of character. The palate is medium-bodied with acidity and filigree tannins. The finish is very precise, with cranberry leaf and wild strawberry lingering long in the mouth. This is a stunning take on Pinot Noir. Drink now-2018."
