  • Tasting notes

    Beautiful garnet color with aromas of wild strawberries, saddle leather and cola root. A complex Pinot with notes of leather, spice, and cherry/raspberry comfiture on the palate. Amazing aroma and finishes with an enjoyable Burgundian bent. Pinot lovers may just go ahead and drink it all by itself!

  • Viticultural notes

    The G LOT, planted in 1994 defined a new terroir for Pinot Noir at almost 5,000 ft elevation in the Andean foothills. First extreme high altitude planting of Pinot Noir in Mendoza. Extremely cold nights and rocky-calcareous soils.
