Viña Cono Sur Red Blend Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenère Organically Grown 2009
This wine’s deep, beautiful red-carmine colour is typical of the variety it represents so well. A delicious and velvety Carmenere, which displays red fruit aromas combining perfectly with spicy hints. In mouth it’s definitely an intense wine, tasty, juicy and elegant. Appreciate its excellent structure and a balanced acidity. Drink young: from 2 to 3 years.
Editorial Reviews for Viña Cono Sur Red Blend Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenère Organically Grown
Sweet tart on the nose with some compost, herbaceous notes over a bit of pickle barrel. This is fairly low in acid, sort of lying across the palate with a nice low intensity core of blueberry and sour cherry fruit that leads to a short, slightly drying finish. 84pts

really surprised by this wine and for $8 have to rate it a 4.5. Get big blackberry up front, little acid, no tannins, and the fruit lingers; for me, great balance - really enjoyable
Blackberry and a bit of heat on the nose. Bold and lush fruit on the tongue. A bit tart but sweet on the finish. I really enjoyed this and would definitely get again!
This is loaded with jammy blackberry,boysenberry fruit with some licorice spice in the background.There is a slight herbal green pepper /tomato leaf edge on finish as well as some cocoa . Great price as well.
External Reviews for Viña Cono Sur Red Blend Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenère Organically Grown
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.
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.
