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.
