This Pinot Noir from Araucano is an honest, scrappy wine with nice raspberry and cherry aromas backed by flavors of red plum, raspberry and cocoa. It features slightly edgy acidity and a lean body, but it's well made and delivers toasty oak and length on the finish. Encouraging for Chile's Pinot Noir efforts.
