Tasting Notes

Structured, elegant and delicious, this Chilean offering shows classic Pinot Noir notes of strawberry and cinnamon, along with an exotic nuance of scorched citrus peel. It is full in the mouth, with a restrained structure that lurks beneath the imposing fruit. This is immediately accessible, but will no doubt continue to drink well over the short term.

Staff Pick Notes

Chile is a pretty young wine region for Pinot Noir but still produces a nice range of what Pinot Noir can be. The climate of the Pinot Noir growing region in Chile is maritime, with cool summers and mild winters. Founded in 1980, Viña Leyda is located in the Leyda Valley, just next to San Antonio Valley and south of Casablanca Valley. The Leyda Pinot Noir will charm you as soon as you open the bottle thanks to a beautiful aromatic nose. Flowers mixed with fruits, orange blossom, wild strawberries, and small red berries. Great with light meat dishes, good for parties, or for simply sipping on while watching an HBO show.
