About the wine  

Casas del Bosque oversees's 625 acres located outside Santiago, the capitol of Chile. Today Casas del Bosque is one of the most important wineries in Casablanca.

In 2013 and 2014, the prestigious International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) chose the winery as the “Chilean Wine Producer of the Year”.

Their mission is to produce wines of the uppermost quality, always searching for excellence. Modern viticulture coupled with an exquisite cool climate in the Casablanca Valley allow them to produce some of the best wines in all of Chile. Their passion for wine, love for the process, and respect of the terroir grants them the ability transform honest grapes into virtuous wines!

The 2014 Pinot Noir Pequenas is born from hand harvested grapes. The wine is fermented in open air vats and aged in French oak barrels for 14 months (21% new) and bottled unfiltered. This wine displays the potential of Pinot Noir in Chile and their mission to produce elegant and approachable wine.

Tasting notes: Ruby red in color. On the nose, an exuberant aroma of black cherry and cedar is accompanied by notes of smoke and earth. The palate is covered in layers of blackberry and leather, giving way to a smoky and mineral finish. Well integrated oak is backed by well rounded tannins, giving excellent length and structure.

Reviews

(raised in French oak barrels, 21 percent of them new, for 14 months) Bright ruby-red. Ripe, spice-tinged black raspberry, smoked meat, vanilla and incense on the deeply perfumed nose. Intense red and dark berry liqueur and spice cake flavors are lifted and sharpened by a smoky mineral flourish. Concentrated as well as lively, finishing with impressive persistence and sexy notes of candied violet and toasty oak spices .~92Vinous
