Bodega Chacra Pinot Noir Río Negro Barda 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Supple and inviting, with rose petal, cherry, strawberry and sweet spice notes that mingle on a fresh, modestly structured frame. Tender, but lengthy on the finish. Drink now.

Bodega Chacra is located in the Rio Negro Valley of northern Patagonia, 620 miles south oi Buenos Aires, 1,240 miles north of Tierra del Fuego, and roughly equidistant west to east from the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The property situation in the arid central Argentine desert is tempered by the confluence of the Neuquen and Lirray Rivers, both of which flow from the Andes and converge in the Rio Negro, which in tum flows into the Atlantic. The Rio Negro Valley itself is a glacial bed 15.5 miles wide stretching 310 miles along the rivers banks at an elevation of 750 feet above sea level. The valley is irrigated by a network of channels excavated in the late 1820s by British colonists who observed the abundant snow melt flowing from the Andes and created an oasis in the middle of the desert.

This opens slowly and cautiously with notes of pollen, licorice, and roasted ligonberry fruit. While subtle this is very complex with a faintly sweet edge to the medicinal herb notes and lovely insinuations of cigarette ash and limestone that gives this real finesse on the nose. This is an odd wine, fairly plush at once and then loose and with faded flavors but the intensity of the fruit grows on the palate and as opposed to getting bored with this I find myself being drawn in to it’s subtlety. The finish is quite long with vibrant acids and the scratch of minerality that sets this apart from much pinot. The fruit is really wonderful with burnt cherry tones framed with tea and chalk. 91pts

Black olives and bay leaf flavors on the nose. Rich and dense with chocolate and green pepper notes. There's a hint of truffle and some barnyard, before the wine finishes on barely ripe raspberries and cherry flavors. Lingering tobacco notes.

Pure and lovely refreshing. Rich and sweet Pinot fruit. Touches of blackcurrant. The fruit is rich, sweet and spicy, with liquoricy concentration and lovely finesse.
