Our main goal is to create expressive and innovative wines from one of the world's southernmost wine regions. 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. Our quest is to present the world with the finest grape expression and character, from Chile’s varied wine regions. Right from the start Cono Sur applied the newest ideas and technology to winemaking’s traditional methods. Our main goal, therefore, is to create expressive and innovative wines from one of the world’s southernmost wine regions. Read less

Spicy and structured, but unfortunately not a very good nose. Hardly able to get the dark chocolate aftertaste which I had expected from a Carmenere.

Much better than I expected for $10 and a screw cap, fruity and yet earthy at the same time. Cherry cola, blackberry, tobacco, and oak nicely balance out. Rich, full of flavor, what a value for the price. Chile should be very proud of its wines these days.

A nice wine priced for a song! Opens easily with berries, slight smokieness, and burst of acidity. Velvety tannins are there but well integrated. Would give this 5 glasses if I considered price at all. Varietally correct as well, tastes like the component of a Bordeux blend that it is (at least used to be). If you like Cab Franc...give this grape a try.

Very smooth, I`m fond of that subtle chocolate and herb note.

Spicy, earthy red with great fruit, hearty body and elegant richness. Don't let the obscure varietal throw you off - 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.

A great example of Chile\'s adopted grape varietal and an excellent value.

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.

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.

Very juicy, with forward, tasty flavors of plum, blackberry, tobacco and roasted vanilla. There's a nice dash of grip on the finish. Drink now.
