Dark fruits – raspberry and black cherry. Seems to show a mineral note as well. Wood sticks out a touch but for the...

An excellent value pinot noir. There is little to compete for around $11 for this quality and varietal authenticity....

A really lovely, quaffable pinot noir with plenty of character and appeal. Woodsy, leafy notes along with red tea,...

Very good, tasty Pinot Noir; and at just over ten dollars, the price definitely can't be beat.

Great with duck confit.

Fruity and spicy with lots of oak and dill.

continued to be impressed by this impossibly priced Pinot. Fruit driven, slightly sweet but not cloying with decent acidity, silky tannins and just a bit of alcohol heat. you won't confuse this with a top shelf Pinot, but you'd never guess its non-saccharin varietal driven character cost well below the $25 mark.

Earthiness, raspberry, and spices on the nose. It has softening tannin with lots of fruit - easy drinking.

Truly a good value pinot noir that is fruit-driven with a subtle earthiness. Cranberry, dusty cherry and raspberry aromas with leaves and a light touch of smoke. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with bright acidity and soft tannins with a medium plus flavour intensity. A nice example of a new world pinot with a classic flavour profile.

A great value year after year, this light, refreshing, easy-drinking wine from Cono Sur offers pretty much everything you might want in a basic, inexpensive Pinot Noir, with invigorating fruity notes of cherry, raspberry, and redcurrant supported by earth, crushed rock, and even a touch of smoked meat. The too-obvious flavour profile makes it seem a bit forced, even a bit fake, and an unyielding musty-rubbery aroma prevails throughout, but otherwise it's pretty good for what it is, lack of character and all.
