K&L Notes

Pedro Parra is best know for his consulting work, he has a PhD in terrior, it is a real thing! He has spent the last 15 years traveling all over the world digging holes in to the best terroirs so vinticulturalist and winemakers have a better understanding of what they are working with. He is native to Concepción, Chile so when he decided to start making wine it made sense to hime to do so in his back yard in the Itata and Bio-Bio valleys. He uses all of his experience to help elevate these lesser known regions and there even lesser known varieties, Pais and Cinsault. This is part of his Jazz series. He likes to use the analogy of a musician to terroir. A musician can perform the same piece over and over, but each time with will be a little diiferent. Every year presents a new oportunity for a terroir to perform the same song again. HUB = Freddie Hubbard

    How often do we see high quality, delicious Cinsault as a single varietal bottling? Not often. This wonderful bottling from Chile has a nose of pomegranate fruit with campfire smokiness. It starts off clean but, fleshes out nicely with bright red fruits and acid. Tart is the key word here. This is balanced by savory notes and smoke. There are just sooo many foods that this wine will pair with! Good price, too!

    This interesting wine starts out with alluring aromas of fertile soil, garrigue and a touch of smoke. The medium weight body is fine and filled with tart berry and sweet plum fruit that slides into a clean and slate tinged finish. Complex, interesting and easy to drink.

    The Itata valley is a hotbed of cool winemaking right now, and bottles that make it to the states these days seem to regularly have the sophistication to match their adventurous stylings. Taking after it's innovative namesake, the Hub plays on the edge of convention, bending cinsault's friendly character into a suave suit of savory edges and stone backing. Tart and ripe red fruit spread out on that cool black stone note on the nose and palate, ending in a rosmary, garrigue finish - Nerd Wine for the Masses

    This is a very interesting wine that is unique and delicious. The nose has berry aromas . In the mouth complex and dry with layers of spice, fruit and earth. It think that it will go well with food and will evolve in the glass.
