Trumpeter Pinot Noir

argentine wine  %tages Trumpeter Pinot NoirWe’ve been reviewing a lot of pinot noir over the past several weeks and we’re getting toward the end of this series.  In the lineup, we’ve only reviewed one from Argentina so far, the Humberto Canale from Patagonia.  And the Trumpeter makes it two, this one appearance from the Mendoza province.
Trumpeter is produced by Rutini Wines, a winery with a description going back to 1885.  Although it was run as a family winery for four generations, it was bought by a group of investors in 1994 and has gone through extensive modernization since then.  The winemaking at Rutini is currently let by Mariano Di Paolo, who joined Rutini back in 1995.

This wine is a slightly darker than I expect from a pinot noir.  The nose is a small bit forceful at first, building it hard to get any distinct aromas.  But once it opens up, it shows raspberry, cherry and floral aromas, but it’s subdue rather soft.  The http://1000-facts-about-wine.com fruit is much more lively on the palate where strawberry and cranberry flavors show up with excellent concentration.  The mouth feel is nice and silky, which is one of the things I like most about this wine.  And that strawberry flavor sticks around on the end for some time.
This is a excellent wine and at ten bucks, it’s a fantastic deal.
