Absolute bargain price - easily drinkable wine that is great even at an early age. Costs about £6 in the UK.
This was one of the best un-recommended noirs i've ever had. Just grabbed it from the shelf and it was very pleasant.
Light and aromatic, very nice.
beautiful full bodied wine very fruity and great with pasta. Definitely getting this one again!
a good pinot for the buy; it's very light and fruity in the nose. unless you don't like a lot of fruit, then you shouldn't have a problem with it.
For the price it is very reasonable but for it didn't have as much red fruit as I was expecting. Usually find the new world mass market wines have that real fruit intensity but this seemed to have the more mineral aspect. OK but won't be rushing back to it.
The color was a dark ruby color. The nose was cherry and plum. The initial taste was a bit tart but then it smoothed out as it went over the back of the mouth. It went great with grilled salmon!

We're always pleased to taste Pinot Noir that's varietally correct. And correct this is in so many ways. Aromas of raspberries and cherries dominate the palate. This is clearly an expression of New World Pinot Noir with the abundance of fruit!
We're always pleased to taste a Pinot Noir like this one from Cono: bright, fruity, and varietally correct in so many ways. Aromas of raspberries and cherries dominate the palate. The abundant fruit makes this as clear an expression of New World Pinot Noir as anything on our shelves.
Fresh and intense fruit notes of plum, cherry and raspberry combine with slight floral and earth tones. The winemaker ineded this Pinot Noir to be fresh adn experessive.
