2011 Ventisquero Queulat Pinot Noir $15

Walking a swaggering line between taut and generous. Fleet footed but not at all lacking in flavor energy. Fruit crackles with high toned Pinot bombast, though Its soft spot is in the mid gut where, were it to pack some fortitude, this could easily be thrice the price. Overall a lighter endowed Pinot and comparable to a lot of Burgundies at a fraction of the cost. Drink on opening.
