Let's get this out of the way: don't expect to keep getting these killer deals on Pinot. Pinot Noir is a capricious and finicky grape, and finding a really good inexpensive Pinot Noir is a tall order. I am not magical.
But....this week, you are in luck. Once again, we've found the Holy Grail: excellent Pinot that doesn't break the bank.
The Maray estate is in Chile's Limari Valley, farther to the north (and thus nearer the equator) than familiar regions like Maipo, Aconcauga, or Maule. Daytime is very, very warm. But thanks to a gap in the coastal hills, nights cool off, allowing the grapes to retain their acidity and elegance. Close your eyes, take a sip, and you can practically smell the sea spray. This is prime Pinot Noir country.
The Maray Pinot Noir is bursting at the seams with red and black cherries, strawberries, and spice. Grace notes of mineral and a gloss of warm vanilla-scented oak complete the picture-lithe, pretty, silky-smooth, and seductive.
Good Cheap Pinot- as rare as polite Massachusetts drivers..
