Casa Marin Pinot Noir San Antonio Valley Lo Abarca 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Moderately dark color with a bright red rim (bodes well for aging). Aromas of cherry and red berry with hints of cool climate cranberry framed in wisps of smoky peat hearth fire. Flavors are bright, with firm acid structure supporting the same fruit tones perceptible in the aroma - very persistent! Finish lingers with long, late acid backbone carrying the red berry late into the aftertaste.

Viña Casa Marín is a family-owned winery located in the San Antonio appellation, only 4 kms. from the coast. It is currently Chile's closest vineyard to the Pacific Ocean. It was founded in the year 2000 by Maria Luz Marín, winemaker and entrepreneur, whose goal of providing innovation to the local wine industry is being accomplished by her focus on premium wines which are a reality with the new “terroir.” It has been described as one of the “most daring and innovative” vineyards in the country. Surrounded by the steep hills of the Chilean coastal mountains, the unique microclimate and wide variety of soils found here give birth to a “terroir” recently discovered for the viticulture of fine wines. The first 25 hectares were planted with Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling. Chilean and British winemakers comprise a dedicated team who have contributed their know-how to the production of truly outstanding wines. Read less

Vintage: 2005 05/16/2009

Intensives Rubinrot. Elegantes Beerenbouquet, Heidelbeeren, schwarze Johannisbeeren; Pralinénoten. Eleganter Auftakt mit feinen Aromen von schwarzen Kirschen, dezente Waldbodennoten, schwarze Trüffeln, etwas Kaffee, elegante Tannine, anhaltend.



<p>This dark red wine owes its color to the presence of dark fruits in its aroma and flavor. Aromas of mulberry, ollalieberry, and black cherry combined with raw, earthy aromas of truffles and the forest. Its flavors of dark fruits combine with mocha, all of which provides for a rich texture and a solid finish. Goes well with fish, white meats, pastas, salads, and risotto.</p>
