"This is a very balanced and refined pinot with a lovely fine tannin texture and length. Lots of dark fruits and spices. More Sonoma County than Cote d’Or. You are going to like it. Drink now." (91 pts.)

RP89 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 27th Aug 2015

"Marginally better than the “joven,” the 2014 Alto Limay Select Pinot Noir has a bit more depth, concentration and ripeness. Here, 30% of the wine matured in new French and American oak barrels while the rest was kept in stainless steel vats, but there is no trace of new oak in either nose or palate. Silky with fine tannins and good acidity, this is a very worthy, light, Pinot Noir. 36,000 bottles produced." (89 pts.)

Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
