Added Dec 8, 2009 at 8:32pmReceived this pinot as a gift, have never had a Chilean pinot before, but like some of their whites. Typical pinot translucency in the glass is always a great start. Initial nose was a little funky and earthy, but some bright cherries shined through. A few swirls in my mouth showed some tart cherries up front, some soil, and a touch of gaminess on the backend. Well balanced and interesting, I definitely like this pinot a lot. Keeps my interest and is palatable on its own, but definitely would show well with a great meal.

Added Dec 8, 2009 at 8:01pmConundrum has been on my radar to try for a year or so. Usually "white blends" aren't my style, as many seem unbalanced and lack the acidity I like. I finally bought a half-bottle to taste. It had a pretty golden color in the glass. I initially got some floral and spicy notes on the nose, it reminded me of a gewurtz, which is not typically a varietal I enjoy. The mouthfeel was a little viscous, tasted similar to the nose, some white flower and spice-again, reminding me of a lot of gewurtz. I couldn't find the breakdown of the varietals in this, but would be interested in finding out. ALthough it taste well-made and balanced with a smooth finish, it's still not my style and I wouldn't seek it out again. Plus the price seems a tad high for a blend.

Added Nov 26, 2009 at 11:28pmSilky smooth, just like cashmere--the perfect name for this wine! Had this in the tasting room at Cline and loved it. Such finesse, this is definitely one of my favorite reds in a long time.

Added Sep 14, 2009 at 6:23pmVibrant spring green grass on the nose, tasted like I just bit into a bunch of fresh arugula--greens mixed with strong peppery notes. Very unique.

Added Aug 28, 2009 at 4:49pmPure grapefruit on the nose. Definite grapefruit flavors up front with other citrus flavors on the midpalate. Once it warmed in the glass I noticed a minerality on the backend, along with citrus rind. Good acidity and complexity for the price. Would definitely drink again.
