Rogue Vine, Grand Itata Tinto 2014, Itata Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: A refreshing red blend of cinsault and pais from Chile that expresses the Itata terroir with impressive vibrancy.
Ruby in color, this wine has a nose you’d expect from a pinot noir, but with smoky, black plum and some notes of raspberry.
On the palate the dry, red blend is bright and lively with medium tannin and medium-plus flavor intensity.
Bottle Note: Delicate explosion of red fruits. A very fresh and expressive wine made of cinsault and pais grapes. A great representation of the Grand Itata. Old bush vines falling from steep granite has only 20 kms from the Pacific Ocean. A wine made by hand with friends.
