A Pure Expression of Pinot Noir at Bargain Prices - 09/11/2009 - Chile

The majority of K&L's buyers are on an endless quest to find the best value-priced Pinots on the market, and our Latin wine buyer, Joe Manekin, has found a beauty.

2008 Casas del Bosque Reserve Pinot Noir, Casablanca, Chile ($12.99)

With all due respect to the viticultural community in the Golden State, no one is making Pinot Noir this tasty and true to the varietal for this low a price, or even several bucks more. Located in the cool climate, coastal region of the Casablanca Valley, Casas del Bosque was named a value winery of the year by Wines & Spirits Magazine. This delicious Pinot Noir shows bright cherry aromas, which lead to a sappy, yet transparent and purely-fruited expression with wonderful acidity and a truly light touch. Think very good quality, $15-18 Central Coast California Pinot, and then just lower the price. This value is sure to make lots of Pinot Noir fans very happy.
