Viña Cono Sur Pinot Noir 20 Barrels 2006
This is definitely a Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of character and personality, right from the start with its beautiful and concentrated ruby red colour. Intense notes of plum, cassis, and blueberries, combined harmonically with softer earthy traces, mocha and smoked hints. Full, complex and intense with persistence and elegance at the end.
This was an excellent Merlot. I think giving it an hour or so to breathe made a lot of difference. Spicy, even on the nose with a good length on the palate. Nice hint of cocoa in there and nice plum notes that didn't overpower.
robust, has a bit of the welch's grape juice taste going
Deep dark black ripe cherry flavor. This is not a light pinot. It's pungent, punchy, big and bright.
Vanilla and peach aromas, sweet cherry, almost strong tannins, moderate alcohol, a bit smoky, very round body and smooth from attack to release.
Bright hot nose. Very sweet flavor, lightly plummy and peachy.
The nose almost knocked me off my feet - dank wet wool, dripping dog and white pepper! Its a pretty pungent Pinot, but better in the mouth - nice use of oak (very oaky to be honest), decent tannins, very full bodied for a pinot, and that overriding note of white pepper. I'd pair this with something meaty - sausages and mash maybe...
Pretty bog standard mass produced Chardonnay. Super bold peach, apple and melon without being overly acidic but becomes tiresome and boring by the 2nd glass.

"The combination of its clayish and stony soils with sun-bathed climate resounds in this variety signature velvety tannins. Deep and intense purple red. Its nose reveals fruity notes like black cherry
