Kingston Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Alazan 2007
very closed even after an hour decant. great structure which tells me it will age for 5-10 years. this is definitely a cellaring wine. great backend oliy-ness which is signature of chile. great peppery mid-palate. reminds me of a lighter version of a carmenere.Add winemaker's notes
The Kingston Family first came to Chile in the early 1900's. Carl John Kingston, the patriarch and pioneer, came to Chile looking for copper (good idea) and gold (crazy idea). "Gramps" Kingston was an American originally from Central Mine, Michigan, which exists only as a ghost town today in Michigan's upper peninsula.

QPR in the hizzy. Oregon, CAlifornia and Burgundy Pinots of this caliber cost 2-3 times this wine. I am still decanting as I write this and it's opening up like a flower.
