Castillo De Molina Pinot Noir 2005

  • Area: Chile, Curico Valley
  • Grape: Pinot Noir
  • Alcohol: 14%
  • Rating: Black 89, Dilettante 90, Nwjr 90
Description: Toast, light florals, cherry vanilla ice cream and wild roses make up the nose. This bolder style pinot has flavors of cherry, toast, violets, vanilla, roses and a hint of wood. The finish is nuanced with soft tannins. Decanting not recommended. The lovely high notes disappear as it sits.

Price: A tiny $9 price on a big wine. Great value!
