Bodega Chacra Pinot Noir Río Negro Barda 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Medium red, a bit pale at the rim. Reticent but ultimately highly perfumed aromas of strawberry, raspberry, flowers, pepper and herbs; showed a darker cherry cola note with aeration. Precise, juicy and seamless, with a savory saline touch to the redcurrant and raspberry fruit flavors. On the light side but subtle, energetic and long for pinot in this price range. This bottling can be fascinating in the better vintages, and 2011 is obviously a strong year here...90" WA 4/13

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.

Lots to offer in this hard-to-find pinot, from the mix of red cherry and shoe leather in the nose to the smooth strawberry and cherry flavors in the mouth, with just enough structure to carry them through a pleasantly extended finish. Deserves to be drunk slowly! (AV 89, http://argovino.com/?p=1031)
