“This world debut of our first black label Pinot Noir is just the beginning of many more premium black label wines that we intend to introduce in the future,” said Scott Mathis, CEO and Chairman of Algodon Fine Wines. “We expect this wine to be a real hit with Pinot Noir lovers. And due to its limited production, we are excited to be able to present a private en premier offer to all stakeholders who would like to lock in their order early.”
“This Pinot Noir was planted in 2000 with plants specifically selected for the Cuadro Benegas region, which has warm days and cool nights. Clones 777-778 were chosen, which give a measured production of very small clusters and grains with rigid skin and little foliage, important for insolation in the ripening of the fruits” said Algodon Wine Estates Senior Winemaker, Mauro Nosenzo. “The resulting wine is of a medium intensity red cherry color, with fruity aromas. Notes of red fruits such as raspberries and currants can be detected, as well as tobacco and chocolate derived from the passage through the wooden cask. On the palate it is delicate with soft and balanced tannins, with mineral, earthy and some mushroom touches that are striking, and balanced acidity with a persistent finish. You’ll be thrilled to sip this from your glass. Cheers!”
