Their second vintage of their top Pinot Noir from Empedrado in Maule, the 2013 Escaleras de Empedrado is as spectacular as the debut vintage. It's clearly recognizable as Pinot Noir, and it has the subtleness, elegance and perfume of the best examples of the grape. There are notes of blood orange skin, exotic spices and a core of crunchy red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, with the tannins of the granite but a flinty sensation that made me think of the wines from the Douro in Portugal. It's both elegant and powerful, concentrated but soft. It's still very young but should develop nicely in bottle. 3,716 bottles produced.
Very attractive dried red fruit with stone character follows through to a medium body and a tight and dense center palate. Flavorful finish. Pretty, solid pinot. Drink now.
