2012 Cono Sur "Block 21" Pinot Noir
On the nose this wine displays almost Tuscan-like cherry notes, with accents of dried rosemary and Provencal herb, and sweet tobacco.
The wine definitely shows more Pinot Noir typicity on the palate with beautiful cherry and cranberry notes, a silky and soft texture, and a tight and focused finish with clarity and good acidity. There is just a touch of that dried herb quality that crepes onto the palate from the nose, but it's not intrusive to the fruit and adds complexity. 87 points
