CHACRA “Cincuenta y Cinco” Pinot Noir 2016

(Patagonia, Argentina) $50

There are a score of compelling reasons to try this fantastic wine, starting with: how many pinots from Patagonia have you tried? And what if that pinot noir was one of the most exciting new pinot noirs in the world? And what if it was made by the grandson of the man who created Sassacaia, a wine that ushered in a whole revolution in Italian wine? And then there’s the mystical philosophy behind the wine. And the fact that the vines are ungrafted and almost 90 years old. (The story goes on and on). But if for no other reason, you should try Chacra because it’s ethereal. Because it has a lightness of being that the monks of Burgundy would have admired. Because it is pure, wild, and just plain delicious. (12.1% abv)
