Tasting Notes

(13% alcohol): Moderately saturated medium red. Highly perfumed aromas and flavors of strawberry, peppery herbs, cinnamon, patchouli, orange zest and underbrush; reminded me of a top Dujac wine. Dense, ripe and spicy but virtually weightless, with outstanding focus and inner-mouth aromatic lift. There's a lovely core of sweetness here but the wine stands out today for its savory firmness. Finishes very subtle and long, with refined tannins. This retained its perfumed strawberry and spice character after 72 hours in the recorked bottle. Offers a strong argument for the pinot potential of Patagonia.

Score: 94Stephen Tanzer,, March 2013

The 2011 Cincuenta y Cinco is quite balanced aromatically and expressive with nice ripeness and notes of bright cherries. The palate is light to medium-bodied (these wines all range between 12.5% and 13.5% alcohol) and is polished with very fine-grained tannins, very good balance, focused flavors and good persistence. This is ready now, but should also develop more complexity with time in bottle.

Score: 92Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate (220), August 2015

This defines elegance with respect to South American Pinot Noir. A fine blend of cherry, leather and tea aromas leads to a round yet crisp body with toasty, smoky oak framing juicy, light-framed red-fruit flavors. A fresh and precise finish holds onto the wine's generous but refined oak component.
