Cattleya 'Alma de Cattleya' Pinot Noir 2019 Review

This wine is as beautiful and delicate as the watercolor of half of the winery's namesake: Colombia's national flower, the Cattelya Orchid. The other word, Alma means soul and that is what Colombian-native winemaker Bibiana Gonzalez puts into her wine. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with a lithe character and perfumed floral fruit on the nose. The palate is soft and viscous with a slight tannic frame and excellent acidity. This is a great wine. Did we say it was elegant?
