Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon / Carmenere

A winery that I have always enjoyed is Cono Sur, and I gotta say I haven’t met a wine of their’s that I didn’t like.  The same can be said for

Cono Sur 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenere

the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon / Carmenere.  This wine is a 60% Cab Sauv and 40% Carmenere, from the Colchagua Valley, which is located within the Rapel Valley.  This was a fantastic glass of wine.  This wine had a nice dark purple color with a ruby red rim, and on the nose ripe black fruit along with a hint of earthiness.  Smooth tannins and the right touch of oak went along nicely with a flavor of blackberry & plum, and made for an excellent finish.  This is definitely a wine that is hard to put down, and I found it the perfect wine for enjoying a Spring day.  Another great thing about this wine is the fruit was grown organically, and the winery prides itself on sustainable viticulture practices.   Cono Sur is committed to being an environmentally conscious winery, and believes that great wine can be made while taking care of the environment at the same time.  I was quite impressed with this wine, and am already planning on finding more.  So if  you are looking for a great wine to relax with, look no further than this Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere blend.  

Cheers!
