Cinco Manos Pinot Noir 2014
Colchagua Valley, Chile

Shadow of a Doubt (1943)
Friday, July 14 @ 08:00 PM (ET)

Young Teresa Wright stars opposite her threatening uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotten) in one of Alfred Hitchcock’s most compelling suspense films. Shadow of a Doubt brings uncertainty and tension into the typically serene middle-American home, making it an emotionally complex must-see that matches the fresh and complex character of this new world Pinot Noir from a much-lauded Chilean winery.

THE WINE

Savvy Pinot Noir fans are heading south – way down south – for their fix. Chile is earning a major rep for its Pinots, and this new exclusive demonstrates deliciously. It hails from the highaltitude vineyards of the Colchagua Valley. Grapes grow along the Pacific coast, where ocean breezes and that brilliant Chilean sunshine give the grapes their perfectly ripened, fresh and complex character. Thanks to a brief slumber in oak barrels, the wine has a lovely cedar note framing the cherry and berry fruit flavors.

THE FAMILY

The Silva family immigrated to Chile from Bordeaux’s Saint-Emilion region back in 1892 and fell in love with the gorgeous Colchagua Valley (seeing the small snapshot below, you can’t blame them!). They settled there and spent generations growing vines for others – until 1997 when they finally opened their own estate, Viña Casa Silva. Less than 20 years later, they were named Winery of the Year by The Wines of Chile and are officially the most decorated Chilean estate of the 21st century!

THE REGION

Chile is a winemaking paradise, protected from the elements on all sides by a desert (to the north), mountains (to the east), the ocean (to the west) and Antarctica (to the south). Tucked inland, a short distance from the sea, lies one of Chile’s brightest, cool-climate stars – the Colchagua Valley. Here, cool nights, warm days and pristine soils produce some of the finest Pinot Noir around.

WITH FOOD

This silky red makes a fantastic aperitif – guests will want to get their manos (hands) on a second glass. We usually recommend meaty fish like salmon with Pinot Noir (and it’d make a tasty match here), but with its medium body and rich fruit flavors, we think a fine cut of beef like this one from the restaurant at Viña Casa Silva would be a great pick too.
