The Valle de Leyda is located near the Pacific Ocean and 95 kilometres west of Santiago in Chile. Purchased because I taste very few Chilean pinot noirs and MW studies resolutely demand otherwise, this unfortunately proved a rather average wine. In the glass, there are aromas of tomato bush, stems and strawberry jam. The palate has powdery tannins and is a bit flabby with medium length. Rating: Acceptable. Abv: N/A. Price: $20s.
