Wow. Pinot from Argentina! And it was fantastic. If I tasted this blind, I probably would have called Oregon or burgundy. Super funky upon opening with a bit of iron and stewed red and black fruit. After time in the glass, distinctly stemmy/herbaceous notes showed the use of whole cluster. Rose petal and black cherry finish. Very good structure. Such a cool wine provided by @Arden Barnett .

Strawberry and raspberry jam, pine needle, and some jammy earthiness. Pure fruit.

Strawberry jam, licorice, rose water, and smoke. A whiff of green bell pepper and VA, though in a good way. Some vegetal undertone. Moderate plus acid, medium body.

Impressive as everything Chacra makes, beautiful floral notes with twig, bright, clean cherry and some stemmy notes in a fresh, seamless package.
