From the winery...
“The fearless mind leading Marques de Casa Concha, one of Chile’s most prestigious wine brands, is Marcelo Papa. Considered a pioneer in the wine industry, his vision and innovative spirit led him to identify and establish new origins, intending to create wines with a signature style that perfectly represents the unique characteristics of each variety.”
Appearance: Light, translucent, cherry;
Nose: Cherry fruit. Fleeting hints of oak;
Palate: A fresh, fruit-driven wine. Licorice flavors and flashes of oak.
The style here is very different from the Sosie Sonoma County Pinot Noir we tasted yesterday. This wine is tart and fruit-prime. Sosie was herbal and laid-back. Both have a place, and illustrate the versatility of the pinot noir grape.
