Garage Wine Co. Lot #80 Pirque Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2016
|Region||Chile, Maipo Valley, Pirque|
|Brand||Garage Wine Co.|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Pirque Vineyard is a little closed but feels very solid. It has varietal and zone character, without excessive mintiness, faintly balsamic. It's still very young, but it seems to have all the ingredients for a great development in bottle, with the textbook tannins. Derek Mossman described it quite accurately as an "elegant blue-fruited gent with muscles inside a well-cut jacket." There you go! 3,012 bottles were filled from 11 barrels in November 2017 as Lot #80.
