Cono Sur (Chile) Pinot Noir 2006
Vegetation fused with sweet vanilla and a rich berry fruit. On the palate a robust, chewy and dense fruitiness comes to the fore, with masses of spice and a huge dollop of smoky, charry oak flavour. But there is acidity here too, and beneath the rather obvious smoky fatness, there are enough nuances of game and leather, tobacco and soft strawberry pulp to keep this interesting. At its price, a star example of Pinot Noir. 5.99, Sussex Wine Co, Tesco, Waitrose, Majestic and widely available.
