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.
Vanilla and peach aromas, sweet cherry, almost strong tannins, moderate alcohol, a bit smoky, very round body and smooth from attack to release.
The best Pinot Noir in Chile by the best wine maker in this same country.
I picked up this little gem at a Burgundy tasting in Indy for $23. Incredibly rich Pinot Noir that blew away the true Burgundies at 1/3 the price. Quite interesting minerally aftertaste that might be described as 'gunpowder', but with the rich classic Pinot flavors giving it a well-balanced complexity.
