Santa Rita 2012 Pinot Noir 120, Central Valley
From the producer of Wine Spectator's #47 On the Top 100 2013!
As Chilean winemakers continue to discover the best micro-climates for Pinot Noir, we're seeing more and more of them and better and better quality. This wine from Santa Rita is a perfect example. Sourcing from vineyards in both the Leyda and Rapel Valleys they've created a super value Pinot with their state-of-the-art wine making facilities that's got true Pinot character. Supple and strawberry tinged, it takes on an earthy richness on the mid-palate with spice and black cherry nuance and it finished bone dry and lingering. All this for a price that's made Chilean wine wildly popular. You'll want to stock up!

        Comments about Santa Rita 2012 Pinot Noir 120, Central Valley:

        This wine was so highly rated, that I trusted I'd be able to give as Christmas gifts to friends. But it really is mediocre, nothing special, so I would be embarrassed to give as gifts. I am very disappointed. I now have a case to use up. Suppose I'll use this for cooking---just to use it up.

          This Pinot was very well received by several couples with whom we shared at dinner-pizza, pasta and grilled chicken.We have now consumed a case and are ordering more.
          maybe a bit light for a char broiled steak-depending on your taste, but we find it good with a wide range of foods.

              This is the kind of wine you can serve to anyone and they will probably love it. Not too sweet, not too dry, went well with everything we tried it with. (Might not stand up to a hearty steak cooked on the grill.) We absolutely loved it and are looking for more!

                120 is great room temp or chilled. I normally drink a Cab, but 120 is smooth enough to serve to girl friends who drop in for a chat and a glass of wine.
                It does not overpower. Love it.
