Viña Cono Sur Pinot Noir Rapel Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Dressed in fresh purple red colour, 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 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, it’s a young and refreshing Pinot. Our Cono Sur Pinot Noir is a great choice for all sorts of pasta, grilled poultry, seafood and mild fish. It’s also excellent when accompanying dishes served with pesto sauces. If ordering in, mushroom pizza and sushi go great with this wine.

This is the kid on the tricycle. The entry level wine is a simple, med-bodied Pinot Noir with aromas of raspberry, plum and strawberry. Slightly smoky. Clean sweet fruit flavours, refreshing acidity and fine tannins. What more can you ask for for under a tenner?! Drink now. 85/100.

8 months aging in barrel and 8 months in tank. Med ruby colour. Clean, med+ nose of cherries and strawberries. There is some pretty fruit flavours here that are true to Pinot Noir, but the tannins are a little too subtle for my liking. Drink now. 86/100.

Light color and light mouth feel. Slight touch of citrus on the nose. Tastes of plum and cherry with a short, tart finish. Crisp but not much sustenance.

Vegetal and herbaceous on the nose with a bit of spicy, funky raspberry. Powerful on the finish wrapped with a bit of headiness for a Pinot.

A spicy but nicely drinking Pinot Noir. Smells of tobacco and red fruit on the nose. A good food wine.

Nose is quite meaty, reminiscent of a smokey roasted red meat entree of some sort or barbecued pork/bacon with some subtle notes of grapes and plums as a sort of backdrop. Flavor is rich with tannins and oak, though the meatiness of the nose is thankfully missing when you actually drink it, replaced with more pruney flavors enhanced by flavors of tart cherries and even some tangy apricot. Despite the booziness, it's quite smooth and clean, not leaving a lot of aftertaste on the palette after drinking. Not the best Pinot Noir I've ever had, nor is it the best Chilean wine of any sort I've sampled, but for the price, it's a solid offering if you let the bottle breathe a little before pouring and you pair it with the right meal.

Real talk this wine stinks! Notes of rotten snozberries.

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.

Very friendly, with effusive cherry and licorice snap notes backed by a lively finish. Drink now.

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.

Cool scents of strawberry and tealeaf fill this soft, light pinot noir. For smoked salmon.
