Luca Pinot Noir 2011

External Review:

Catena has again hit a home run with her 2009 Pinot Noir (as she did in 2006, 2007, and 2008). There is very little Pinot Noir in Mendoza (Patagonia is the principal hope for Argentina Pinot Noir) so this streak is particularly impressive. The grapes... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Think pinots all have mild bouquets? Think again – this one, a boutique product from Laura Catena, grabs you with powerful aromas of apple peel, tanned leather and coffee grounds. Its pinot vines may be some of the highest in the world, at 4,700 feet! But the wine itself is light and citric, offset by a heavy dose of oak with a bitter note of burnt caramel. The flavors linger long enough, yet they could be more attractive. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=1236)

Catena has again hit a home run with her 2009 Pinot Noir G Lot (as she did in 2006, 2007, and 2008). There is very little Pinot Noir in Mendoza (Patagonia is the principal hope for Argentina Pinot Noir) so this streak is particularly impressive. The grapes are sourced from a relatively young vineyard at 4700 feet of elevation. The wine was aged for 12 months in 30% new oak and bottled without fining or filtration. Medium ruby in color, it offers up an alluring bouquet of cherry blossom, strawberry, raspberry, smoke, and incense. Velvety-textured with silky, layered fruit, complex flavors, and a lingering finish, this superb value (for Pinot Noir) will provide pleasure for another 6–8 years if not longer.

This new Pinot from Laura Catena’s Luca label is fresh, honest and peppy. The nose is lightweight, airy and a little earthy, while the palate is fresh and agile, with good acidity and nice raspberry and pie cherry flavors. Shows some oak, vanilla and spice on a dry, mild finish. Definitely on the right path.

The fruit for the 2008 Pinot Noir was sourced from a 15-acre parcel from the Adriana Vineyard made famous by Catena Zapata and aged in 30% new French oak. It displays lovely aromatics of raspberry and cherry, plenty of body, sweet, succulent flavors,... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
