It's a Red Wine Thursday here in Northern California. I've got tomorrow off and the family will be heading up to the mountains for a little rest and relaxation.
Cracked open a 2008 Cono Sur Pinot Noir from Chile tonight to go with the take out Thai food I picked up on the way home. Nice Pinot flavor - really earthy, plus some nice red fruit flavors - raspberry, cherry, lotsa plum - nice....
Here's the propoganda from the website:
Dressed in fresh purple red colour, this is a voluptuous Pinot Noir with rich fruit notes of cherry, raspberry, plum and strawberry – a red fruit party! – enhanced by subtle smoked hints. In mouth sweet fruit notes stand out, and its fine tannins give it a great texture and a mouth filling structure. Balanced and New World styled, this is a wine of personality and elegance. Sexy, pure and simple, it’s a young and refreshing Pinot.
