External Reviews for Viña Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon Bicycle
A full, generic berry fruit opening is not such a bad thing for value-priced Chilean Merlot. Fresh and fruity in the mouth, with no hard edge or bite. A mild herbal layer settles in on the finish. Tight and solid overall.
Fresh, pure and uncomplicated, with ripe mixed berry and plum fruit caressed by modest vanilla on the round, easy finish. Very tasty. Drink now.
Dark red. Spicy cherry and cassis aromas are complemented by mocha and licorice. This fleshy, sweet midweight shows clean red fruit flavors straight through the finish, which delivers surprising vibrancy and silky tannins for a merlot at this price. This is what people want when they buy merlot, but they seldom get unless they're willing to drop $40, or much more.
Blackberry, mint, forest floor and a touch of oak create a nice aromatic whole. Plum and berry flavors are full and ripe, while the mouthfeel is round and commendable. This is a Merlot that touches all the bases.
