A pleasant Chilean Pinot Noir from the cool climate Casablanca Valley. Aromas of sour cherry and smoke. Juicy acidity for seafood. The vineyards are planted on the outskirts of the town of Molina.

Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled flank steak, venison stew, baked partridge in wild mushroom sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Soft and elegant, showing cherries, sweet spice, sous bois and dark chocolate on this aromatic prize-winning Pinot from Chile. Made from hand-picked grapes for optimal fruit expression, using vegetarian and vegan winemaking techniques. Pinot Noir is so versatile with a variety of foods, from cod stew to roast duck to chocolate mousse. Will cellar 5-6 years.

Echeverria Gran Reserva 2016 is a dry, medium-bodied Pinot Noir from vineyards on the outskirts of Molina in the Casablanca Valley. Great price point on this spicy, fresh red berry Pinot Noir. Tannins are chewy, pair with grilled meats. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
