Food Pairings for Viña Cono Sur Pinot Noir Colchagua Valley Visión Old Vine Block 68
On first opening the nose is toasty with notes of bacon and gamey dark stone fruit with a palate that is tart raspberry and blueberry with a hint of burnt citrus tartness on the finish. On day two the palate is much more like what you would expect in a Pinot with lots of bright red berry and strawberry.
Like so many Cono Sur offerings, this Pinot Noir is reasonable value for the lucre. However, it does not differ all that significantly from the cheaper, regular Pinot Noir from this producer to warrant the price difference - at least not in this reviewer's opinion. There is the usual leather, plum and stewed cherry with rubber on the nose - indicating a bit too much sulfur in the preservation stage of the wine-making. The attack is pleasant - if you like this New World stuff - and the finish is medium and likewise reasonably rewarding. However, there is little finesse light tannins notwithstanding. Overall assessment? Decent fare but nothing to write home about if you are a true fan of the Pinot grape.
More tanic and acidic than most Pinot Noirs. I enjoyed this a lot. Tasted at Geneva wine tasting 4/18/2010.
This was good, for a pinot in this price range. Nice red fruits and a touch of oak. Rich. A good buy.
On the nose rich plum fruit and a touch smoky/vegetal. Thin in the mouth but plenty of flavour makes it interesting. Berry fruit, a bit of cherry. Again there is that vegetal quality and some mineral and tannin to lift it above simple fruity new world pinot. Easy drinking but more to it than expected.
Viognier is my favorite white. this one rates up with some of the best I have tried!
It's not the type of wine to inspire a deep philosophical discussion or a lot of insightful notes about flavor or anything like that. It's just a nice sipping wine. It's tasty, it's not expensive and I enjoyed it while cooking dinner.

Winery notes: A fresh purple red color this is a voluptuous Pinot Noir with rich fruit notes of cherry raspberry plum and strawberry - a red fruit party! - enhanced by subtle smoked hints. In the mouth sweet fruit notes stand out and its fine tannins give it a great texture and a mouth-filling structure. Balanced and New World styled this is a wine of personality and elegance. Sexy pure and simple its a young and refreshing Pinot.
Aromas of cherry and raspberry bring a slight earthy stemminess, while the palate is light and zesty, with semisharp plum and pie cherry fruit flavors and a dash of red sucking candy. Medium-long at best on the finish, with citrus, tang and pepper notes.
Pinot Noir is trickling in from the Southern Hemisphere; particularly noteworthy is this line of value-oriented Pinots from Chile. With voluptuous texture and bright red fruits all in the right place, Cono Sur's balanced, California-style Pinot puts the emphasis on freshness and ripe fruit.
Bright red in color. Intensely aromatic. Fresh, juicy and crisp in the mouth, with notes of cherry, raspberry and strawberry intertwined with softer traces of plum and a subtle smokiness. Drink with mushrooms and herbs, sushi, white meats, soups, stews, flavorful fish dishes and cheeses such as Edam.
Very friendly, with effusive cherry and licorice snap notes backed by a lively finish. Drink now.
