I bought two bottles of the Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon but didn’t realize I had two vintages…. so here goes the 2015.
Very nice purple in the glass. The nose is of ripe plums, bursting violets and a blackberry component. On the palate I get blackberry, currants, cinnamon and some earthy notes. The wine is easy to drink with slight tannins, moderate acidity and a good mouthfeel. The midpalate has some very nice dark cherry notes with a touch of oak. The tail end is shortish but nice; green olives and cherry come to mind. Overall a very serviceable wine that gets 89 points from me and 5 stars for its $9 price tag. Drink now for best results. Salut….
