Day #345 of the year.

Chacra Barda

During the holidays, I’m always on the hunt for a good new world Pinot Noir. While I love a fabulous French burgundy (when I can afford it), I recognize that there are other fabulous expressions of Pinot Noir that come from different parts of the world besides the Cote d’or. Chacra Barda is a profound example of how Pinot Noir can shine when grown in Argentinian soil. If you’ve yet to try Argentinian Pinot Noir, this is a great place to start. I would say ‘don’t knock it until you’ve tried it’… but you’re definitely not going to knock this one.
