Finca las Nubes Rose Cafayate 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Spicy and barnyard on the nose with hints of caramel and teriyaki framing beef jerky, dried orange peel and pomegranate fruit, all topped with hints of white pepper, pine nuts and some acetic acid. What is going on here? In the mouth, this is more straightforward but really lovely. Vibrant acidity and a nice level of richness highlight the core of bright red fruits, which have a faint tropical fruit quality to them. This retains some of the complexity exhibited on the nose and shows a fine savory edge. Ultimately the complexity comes from a certain rusticity this wine has, something I find appealing. 88pts
