$19 Retail

Chile's Casablanca wine region produces some of the country's best pinot noirs. Irrigated by melting snow from the Andes and cooled by morning fog from the Pacific Ocean, the growing season yields slowly ripened fruit of great expression. The wine is crafted in small batches and ages almost a year in oak casks. It offers aromas of red fruit, black cherries, cassis and toast, followed by raspberries, plum, black currants, some minerality and subtle spice notes. Enjoy the versatile wine with rack of lamb, pulled pork, grilled meats, duck confit, herb baked fowl and roasted vegetables. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle Drink it at: Coquette and Adolfo's.
