Cono Sur Ocio 2008 Pinot Noir

Price: Around $65

Rating: ★★★½☆

Color: Ruby red with violet highights

Nose: Cherries and vanilla

Taste: Medium bodied with good fruit flavor. Acidity is very present on the palate but the finish is nice and lingers a good long time.

Summary: Like sticking your nose in a large bowl of ripe cherries, that’s the first impression of its nose.  Then you swirl some more and sweet vanilla fills your senses. Very aromatic.  The taste experience left me with the clear idea that this wine needs to sit for another 2-3 years. The potential is there but the flavor is tight. It needs to break down some more and reach a more mellow point. Great for cellaring. 3.5 stars today, 4.5 in three years from now!

Product of Chile’s Casablanca Valley.
