A little 2016 Errazuriz Max Reserva Pinot. Thought we would sample some of the Pinot from one of our upcoming visits.

One the nose; sweet spice, bright, dark cherries, cherries, pomegranate extract, very ripe strawberries, dark rich soils, cinnamon, vanilla with bright red florals.

The body is round and full. The palate is very ripe, almost candied. Fruits are, ripe, bright. Dark cherries, cherry Jolly Ranchers, very ripe strawberries, pomegranate extract with just a touch of blueberries haunting here & there. Sweet spice, dark rich soils, light vanilla, cinnamon, lightly understated limestone minerals and bright red florals for days. Acidity is like a waterfall. The finish is ripe, fruit forward and well polished.

Photos of the restaurant decor and my Roasted Dark Beer-Marinated Chicken with Cilantro rice. One of the best and unique dishes I’ve had in some time. So good.

Slight smoky note on the nose. Medium to light body with some fruit. Not bad for the price.

Nose of candy and a little funky sulfur. Light color, gamay- like candy quality yo it. Though it smells a bit better, this tastes like my homemade zin. Blind, I would have guessed that’s what it was. And since James Suckling gave it a 91, I’m sure he would grade my homemade wine equally as well! But I’m a tougher sell, so 8.8
