Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (88)

Review date: July 4, 2010

Wine Review: When I think Argentina, I do not think Pinot Noir. But Luca does everything well, so I was not surprised that this Pinot from them was Very Good. It is a vivid red color and opens with a musty beet and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is a gentle black currant with a hint of black raspberry and faint old oak. The finish is dry and its tannins are mild but sticky. I thought this Pinot would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Beautiful garnet color with aromas of wild strawberries, saddle leather and cola root. A complex Pinot with notes of leather, spice, and cherry/raspberry confiture on the palate. Amazing aroma and finishes with an enjoyable Burgundian bent. Pairs well with foods such as lamb chops, grilled salmon, roasted duck or chicken, and game birds. Pinot lovers may just go ahead and drink it all by itself!
