Alfredo Roca Pinot Noir 2010

This wine was produced by a family that has been making wine for over 100 years in Mendoza, Argentina.  The grapes come from old vine vineyards that are at about 5,000 feet of elevation.  That is very high!

Notes: the nose initially came across a little muted, but has nice clovey red fruits.  The palate is soft and rich with little ripe tannins and a hint of twang in the back of the palate.  The red fruits carry through the wine and create a very nice light bodied wine that has moderate flavors.  I would be delighted to have this with dinner on any weeknight; it is 13.5% alcohol and is pleasant and easy to drink.
