The 2016 season in the Leyda Valley was characterized by moderate to low temperatures and so the ripening period was slow and steady. This resulted in fresh, vibrant wines with good intensity and great typicity.

The nose is complex, opening with black cherries and spices, which give it great personality. Then the notes of vanilla and dried fruit from the oak ageing become apparent.
In the mouth, this wine is fresh, concentrated and has great structure. The wild berries and spices are again apparent and there is a gentle aftertaste of dried fruits and vanilla in the finish.

"Red cherries, cloves and spices are the predominant factor on the nose here. The palate is electrified with vibrant acidity, firm, structured tannins and a long finish..." 93 pts, James Suckling

"The 2016 Sumpai Pinot Noir comes from Leyda, from alluvial and clay soils. It was a cool year in the valley. The place is usually cloudy, so the ripening is very slow. This is varietal and spicy, with some smoke and toasty aromas from the élevage in barrel. The palate is serious, with fine-grained tannins and a supple finish. In general, all of these cool-climate wines have moderate alcohol and good freshness. They have been increasing the amount of stems used in the fermentation, and they used around 25% in 2017; they think their ideal is going to be around 30% stems. 10,000 bottles were filled in September 2017.." 91 pts, Luis Gutiérrez, WA
