Vina Anakena Ona 2008 Pinot Noir

Price: Around $19

Color: Dark cherry red

Nose: Mature berries, cherries, and black pepper

Taste: Very round and silky, buttery even.  Nice intensity and refreshing palate.

Summary: Produced in Chile’s Casablanca valley, this Pinot Noir is high in alcohol content, 13.9%.  That’s not really a bad thing, and in this wine, I hardly noticed it.  The one-word technical description for this wine was “yummy”.  This wine spent 10 months in French Oak barrels.  I can think of so many dishes to pair this wine with… pastas are just a starter, but Pinot Noir can pair well with several seafood dishes, particularly a grilled halibut or swordfish…or Chilean Sea Bass.  I would slightly chill this wine…just a little bit before serving.
