Tasting Notes: 2004 Trapiche Pinot Noir


2004 Trapiche Pinot Noir
Originally uploaded by djcollinator.
WOW! This was a screaming deal at $8. I have found that with Pinot Noir, you get what you pay for. This is not the case here. Leave it to the Argentineans to produce a VERY drinkable cheap Pinot. I have said it before & I am going to say it again...the Argentineans know how to grow some grapes.

The nose was full of cherries with a hint of mint & some cedar. In the mouth it was very light, with bright cherry notes leading into a faint lime-like acidity. Very little tannins until the finish where they were very soft. The finish left quickly & had hints of cloves.
3.5 of 5

I will be getting a bottle of this again. It is a very good mid-week wine & the price can't be beat.

    Good note, made me thirst! And ytou know that probably you pay less for argentinian wines than we do, due to crazy taxes we have here.

    Thanks!
    That is crazy that you pay more, being closer to the source & all. I cant even imagine how much it costs in Argentina, I bet it is dirt cheap!

    Keep an for tasting notes on a 2004 El Portillo Malbec I picked up today.

    In Argentina it's the same, too much taxes, the craziest thing is that it's not cheap there either!
