Tei Tei. Great wine for the price tag. Red fruit aromas and subtle floral notes

Ripe bing cherry attack layered over loamy soil and road tar notes on a short but savory finish.

Gets my vote for bargain of the century. This light-colored Pinot has a complex nose of earth, black cherry, blueberry, cedar, and cigar box with more if the same on the palate. So not a fruit bomb and quite delicious. Better than many Willamette Pinots.

Very good Pinot Noir from Chile. Spicy and silky. Fruit forward with a nice finish. Juicy and fresh. Great with baked halibut at home. Costco wine. Good value.

Hmm a Chilean Pinot Noir 🇨🇱 a warm sharp pleasant surprise, an extremely light Pinot Noir, a good red for the summer. Hints of a slight sour finish.
