Critical Acclaim

90 Points
"Aromas are restrained with notes of cranberries, red cherries and wet earth, as well as a hint of leafiness. Palate is ripe, rich with black cherry and a hint of sweet liquorice. Very appealing indeed. Not the finished article but a nice, savory style, self-contained and persistent."

Winemaker's Notes

The 2012 Santa Alicia Reserva Pinot Noir displays red ruby color with clean and complex aromas of dry cherries, plums and strawberries. Notes of cinnamon and butterscotch. Good volume, firm tannin, expressive and complex.

Pair with grilled Albacore. Grilled chicken and all pasta.

Alcohol by Volume: 13.9%

About Santa Alicia

In 1954, on fertile lands close to the capital of Chile, an important politician and businessman, Mr. Maximo Valdes, founded the vineyard "Houses of Pirque". With extensive experience in the wine business, he begins planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.

After half a century and four generations, the Valdes family has turned these vineyards in the best example of love for the land, and perfection in the quality of its products.

Today, identified as "Santa Alicia", as a way of honoring the women that in each generation carry this name, the vineyard continues with its tradition of excellence and prestige, expressed in each bottle are the decades of experience, high technology, and the privileged fruit which results from a marvelous environment.
