Trapiche Varietals Pinot Noir 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Floral on the nose with stemmy accents and hints of loamy soil and dried cranberries. This enters the mouth a bit round and chunky with lots of sweet raspberry fruit a nice background hint of forest floor and just a hint of mocha. The fruit has a lightly jammy tone to it, and is even a touch sweet giving the mouthfeel an easy softness. Good acidity and very gentle tannins help add some definition on the moderately long, fruity finish. 84pts

The Trapiche team was immensely proud to receive the Trophy for the "Argentinian Wine Producer of the Year 2006", awarded by a jury of wine experts on October 31st in London. When the IWSC, one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the world, created the trophy for "Argentinian wine producer of the year" in 2004, Trapiche was the first winery ever to receive it. The trophy was created because of the growing importance of the Argentina category within the industry; P&O Nedlloyd Logistics is the official sponsor. History repeats itself. Being awarded the trophy again is the proof that Trapiche is paving the way in Argentina´s wine industry, both in terms of quality and innovation. The winner is designated on the basis of its general performance at the IWSC 2006 and Trapiche won the only Gold Medal for an Argentinian wine with Medalla 2003. According to the competition officials, "Each year, the International Wine and Spirit Competition commends the achievements of those members of the wine and spirit trade who make an outstanding contribution to the industry. These individuals or companies set the standards of excellence for the rest of the industry to follow and influence the quality, variety, value, and educational information available to the wine and spirit consumer." Undoubtedly this trophy consolidates Trapiche´s leadership in the Argentinian wine industry. Read less

Aromatic with hints of black cherry and vanilla along with a toasted bread kind of deep nose overtone. Smooth on the palate with a strong finish. Would pair well with any game dish.

With a bit of airing, a tart red currant bouquet wafts up, and then the burst of sweeter flavors are a pleasant surprise: wild strawberries tinged with allspice and a tiny lemony tang. Not the most refined wine by any means, but it’s an apt choice for a lighter style that’ll give any budget Burgundy or Sonoma County pinot a run for its money. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=1230)

2006 vuoden sato ihan jees. Ei mitään mullistavaa, mutta kyllä juo ennemmin kuin ottaa kuuppaan.

Meh. I'm not impressed. A bit on the bitter side, and without that pinot noir je ne se quoi. There's nothing overtly offensive here, but I've had a love-hate relationship with Trapiche and this definitely falls more on the "hate" side of things. Can't even really give you any tasting notes. Apologies.

Tinny nose that's metallic and has some raspberry fruit. The mouth is also closed, has some apple and raspberry fruits in the middle, at least some acidic body to hold it up. Not bad, not that great.

All Trapiche wines are hand-harvested hand-sorted and vinified at their winery. The wines have a new international style fruit-driven and consumer friendly and representing the best of what Argentina has to offer. Trapiches goal is to exceed expectations at every level.
