I thought I did this wine but I could not find it when I searched my blog.
Good for me.
The Cono Sur wines are an inexpensive line of wines from Chile and they tend to be fairly good. They were even recommended by a sommelier on a call in show on CBC radio as a good inexpensive wine to serve at a wedding. I have never had an issue with this wine except for the fact that in some circles it might not be appropriate to bring this wine as a guest because the brand is well known.
But this wine is the first one I have issues with from this line. The first taste is an explosion of fruit and then a harsh acidic dryness wipes the fruit flavour out. I had a few more glasses to be sure but this did not alter the fact – it tastes like a cheap wine.

Pity.
