Cono Sur 2008 Vision Pinot Noir - 84pts
Availability: BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: January 7th, 2010
Tasting Notes: This medium-ruby coloured wines has a lovely, inviting nose that opens up to reveal aromas of nibs, red berries and vanilla when allowed to breath with proper decanting. However, the lovely nose is followed by a muted palate of raspberries, vanilla and a touch of smoky-oak.
There are layers here worth exploring, but the wine makes it difficult. Given the price hike for the "Vision" series compared to Cono Sur's standard Pinot Noir, give this one a pass. - LC
