Vistamar 2015 Sepia Reserva Pinot Noir, Casablanca Valley (Chile)

Bought • Total Wine, 90 Brentwood Promenade Court, in August for $9.99

Description • Usually I shy away from pinot noir in the under-$10 range, but this one is a real winner. It comes from Casablanca Valley, which is best known for its crisp chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. Very true to the pinot noir varietal, this wine is light-bodied but very flavorful with a mouthwatering acidity. This is an earthy and elegant red that tastes of raspberries and cherries. It would go well with grilled salmon and tuna.
