Domaine Nico 2017 Pinot Noir "Grand Mere" Mendoza, Argentina
This is yet another win for the Catena Family. Laura Catena created this wine "Grand Mere" to honer her grandmother who she has the utmost respect and love for; and if your grandparents were the crucial part of putting Argentine wine on a world stage you would too. With this wine she honors their love and wisdom. The vineyard was planted in 1993 with Dijon clones, with 26 years of age it has become a low yielding vineyard but still produces high quality grapes.Aromas of red cherry and strawberry that open up to hints of black fruit combined with spicy character of black pepper and cinnamon.
