Casas del Bosque Pinot Noir 2019, Casablanca Valley, Chile

It is a challenge to find value-priced Pinot Noir, and this example is impressive.  Casas del Bosque displays bright and ripe red cherry fruit intermixed with strawberry jam and crushed dried herbs.  It has a light body with satiny tannins.  This is Chilean in style, but not overly herbaceous.  The Pinot Noir grapes were grown on hillside blocks within the coolest, westernmost reaches of the Casablanca Valley, foggy mornings, warm days and cool nights are ideal for this persnickety varietal.  The grapes were partially destemmed, and the wine was aged untoasted American and French oak barrels, 20% of which were new.
