2016 Kingston Family Vineyards Alazan Casablanca Valley Chile Pinot Noir

12.5% alc., 365 cases, $38. Released September 2017. Some whole cluster. Aged 8 months in oak barrels and concrete egg vat. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. The nose becomes more expansive over time in the glass, revealing aromas of cherry, spice, sous bois and a hint of toasty oak. Wellmannered in the mouth with impressive harmony, offering mid weight flavors of earthy cherry, raspberry and spice. The tannins are nicely integrated making for easy drinking now. The somewhat earthy and savory character reminds me more of Old World than New World. In any case, an excellent wine. Score: 93. Reviewed September 24, 2017
