Winemaker's Notes:

The wine's color is an intense reddish purple and it displays aromas of strawberries, wild berries and plums. It is very expressive and fruity in the nose and concentrated in the mouth.

Red and black fruits combine with a soft, underlying toasted oak flavor with soft tannins to create a beautiful wine served best with red meats, cheeses and stews.

About Cono Sur:

Cono Sur Vineyards and Winery was founded in 1993, with the vision of producing premium, expressive and innovative wines conveying the spirit of the new world. Their name refers to the company's geographic position; it represents wines proudly made in South America's Southern Cone, on whose western edge lays Chile and its gifted wine valleys. Their logo is a freehand drawing of the silhouette of South America. Right from the start, Cono Sur applied new ideas and technology to winemaking traditional methods. Nowadays, Cono Sur's original claim, "No family trees, no dusty bottles, just quality wine," continues to inspire them towards quality, innovation, style and creativity.
