A bit woody on the nose, forest floor red currant, Christmas spice, sandalwood, tea, a bit chunky, a bit sweet up front, nice rose hip accent with a shading of bitter orange oil up front over rather black cherry almost black currant fruit, more forest floor emerges on the midpalate, a little grapefruit character on the slightly compact, slightly extracted finish. This needs another 2 years 91pts

Sweet tart on the nose with some compost, herbaceous notes over a bit of pickle barrel. This is fairly low in acid, sort of lying across the palate with a nice low intensity core of blueberry and sour cherry fruit that leads to a short, slightly drying finish. 84pts

Some ash and sun-dried tomato greet the nose along with black currant fruit and some weediness. A bit murky on the palate, with dark and fairly intense flavors that seem a bit muddy and indistinct. There's some nice, slightly jammy black cherry fruit on the mid-palate and some cocoa and mocha oak notes as well before the oak, burnt and slightly bitter flavor takes over on the moderately long finish. This feels a bit too extracted. 82pts

Too hot and acidic for my taste. Not very complex.

Heat, cherries, plums and a bit of cranberries. Palate is full of tar, cherries, earth and asphalt.

This un-oaked Chardonnay comes with a screw-cap to help preserve the fresh, juicy fruit of the Valle de San Antonio. For those on a budget (or not) this wine is the real deal: lots of juicy mango, peach, pear, lychee on the nose and upon entry. And unlike many similar wines from Chile, not too warm on the finish which, by the way is a strong medium. Buy in bulk, my friends.

really surprised by this wine and for $8 have to rate it a 4.5. Get big blackberry up front, little acid, no tannins, and the fruit lingers; for me, great balance - really enjoyable

    Great purchase for the price. Cherry and raspberry on the nose and a palate that is light but with a spiciness. Hints of cherry and plum. Medium bodied with a long lasting finish.

    Pinot Noir is trickling in from the Southern Hemisphere; particularly noteworthy is this line of value-oriented Pinots from Chile. With voluptuous texture and bright red fruits all in the right place, Cono Sur's balanced, California-style Pinot puts the emphasis on freshness and ripe fruit.

    Very friendly, with effusive cherry and licorice snap notes backed by a lively finish. Drink now.

    Aromas of cherry and raspberry bring a slight earthy stemminess, while the palate is light and zesty, with semisharp plum and pie cherry fruit flavors and a dash of red sucking candy. Medium-long at best on the finish, with citrus, tang and pepper notes.

    Winemaker's notes:Dressed in fresh purple red colour, this is a voluptuous Pinot Noir with rich fruit notes of cherry, raspberry, plum and strawberry a red fruit party! enhanced by subtle smoked hints. In mouth sweet fruit notes stand out, and its fine tannins give it a great texture and a mouth filling structure. Balanced and New World styled, this is a wine of personality and elegance. Sexy, pure and simple, it's a young and refreshing Pinot.Our Cono Sur Pinot Noir is a great choice for all sorts of pasta, grilled poultry, seafood and mild fish. It's also excellent when accompanying dishes served with pesto sauces. If ordering in, mushroom pizza and sushi go great with this wine.

    Cool scents of strawberry and tealeaf fill this soft, light pinot noir. For smoked salmon.

    Deep ruby. Ripe aromas of blackcurrant, cherry, plum and tobacco, lifted by a subtle floral quality. Rich and ripe, with a rather supple texture and a sweet dark berry flavor dominating. I don't detect any tannins in this fruit bomb. Finishes with expansive dark fruit character and sweet persistence.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Chardonnay has a beautiful, young yellow colour with golden hints. Exuberant and complex, this wine conveys refreshing citrus aromas, fruity notes of white peaches, along with mineral hints. In mouth complex fruity flavours mingle in with lovely mineral notes. Our Cono Sur Chardonnay is a young and fresh wine, very balanced, with a great acidity.
