Viña Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2007
Cono Sur Vineyards & Winery was founded in 1993, with the vision of producing premium, expressive and innovative wines conveying the spirit of the New World. Our name refers to the company’s geographic position; it represents wines proudly made in South America’s Southern Cone, on whose western edge lies Chile and its gifted wine valleys. Our logo also evokes a freehand drawing of the silhouette of South America. Right from the start Cono Sur applied new ideas and technology to winemaking traditional methods. Our main goal, therefore, is to create expressive and innovative wines from the world’s southernmost land. 20 Barrels started life in 1996 as an expression of the best 20 Barrels of Pinot Noir which Cono Sur produced, and was then extended along similar lines to other varietals as quality levels were achieved. They are for the most part single vineyard wines from the best terroirs available for each variety. They are harvested with yields on a par with or below those of their classic counterparts in Burgundy 1er Cru, Bordeaux (top AOCs) and Sancerre. This 20 Barrels Cabernet Sauvignon won Gold at the International Wine Challenge (2008). This is definitely a Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of character and personality, right from the start with its beautiful and concentrated ruby red colour. On the nose are intense notes of plum, cassis, and blueberries, combined harmonically with softer earthy traces, mocha and smoked hints. It is a full, complex and intense palate with persistence and elegance at the end. Ideal with all kinds of red meats, pâté, lamb and game. When pairing it with cheeses, select dry and/or strong-flavoured versions along the lines of Brie, Gorgonzola, Camembert or Cheddar.
Served slightly chilled. This wine is a pale yellow color in the glass. On the nose this wine shows tropical fruit, pineapple, papaya, and pear. The flavors on the palate follow the nose with papaya and other tropical fruits. This wine has off-dry sweetness, good acidity, and a medium-light body. The finish is quick but clean with a little sweetness. This wine shows great balance overall. It is a very accessible wine that is easy to drink and in my opinion it would be a crowd-pleasing type of wine among wine enthusiasts and non-wine drinkers alike. Good quality to price ratio. High 3.5 out of 5.
My husband loved it, but I felt a little bit rough. Bought at Hiranoya (Yokohama) http://www.rakuten.co.jp/hiranoya/ 1,100 yen (excluding tax) I haven't tasted this yet.
Deep inky purple colour; rich, spicy plum nose with herbal notes; dry palate, well balanced with light to medium tannins on the finish. Nice for a bottle less then $10
I picked this bottle up $5 on a clearance rack at World Market. For $5 this is a very good wine. Chilled for 15 minutes before tasting. At first the aromas where a bit muted but open up with time. Noted citrus and lime on the nose and tastes of tropical fruits, peach, and citrus. The tastes are very apparent but tend to fade rather quickly. Very easy and enjoyable to drink.
Lovely, restrained, balanced lychee, soft spice and flowers. Still, there's really much more to it than "Here's an interesting New World Gewürztraminer..." Chile's lesser-known cool region wines are already on the major export markets (Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc), but they are about to invade the US market on a much more significant scale. The Bio-Bio valley is a sort of ideal place for the traditional Alsatian white varieties. I'm quite sorry to admit, they are just as good as (and present a better value than) any NZ-farmed Alsatian whites I've tried. We'll be seeing more Bio-Bio-farmed Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris wines soon. Just like my advice with Chilean Pinot Noirs, try them now before the critics force prices up over the next several months.
it red. wen sniffin it gettin the alkohooli in nose. wen tasting it feel silly in head also brought bluperry pie in mind. 9/10 stars for me to poop on.

Spicy, earthy red with great fruit, hearty body and elegant richness. Donrsquo;t let the obscure varietal throw you off mdash; you will love this wine if you like Cabs, Syrahs or Merlots. Very easy to drink, with excellent food-pairing potential. Serve this with any steak, beef stew or grilled vegetable dish.
Very juicy, with forward, tasty flavors of plum, blackberry, tobacco and roasted vanilla. Therersquo;s a nice dash of grip on the finish. Drink now.
Bold, yet extremely smooth, this wine gives off a deep garnet red color in the glass that leads to flavors of cherry, blackberry, dark chocolate and coffee.
90 Points Robert Parker: `The 2007 Pinot Noir Vision is medium ruby-colored revealing an enticing bouquet of strawberry and cherry. This leads to a wine with good varietal character lively acidity ample silky fruit and good length. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.`
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 donrsquo;t detect any tannins in this fruit bomb. Finishes with expansive dark fruit character and sweet persistence.
