The day before I tasted the 14 vintage of Cono Sur Pinot I read a story about a group of Californian wine producers whose goal was to craft red wines with the ‘refreshing bite’ of traditional European wines. I’ve always found Cono Sur wines to be Euro in style and their 14 Pinot is certainly refreshing. Along with the a food-friendly whiff or white pepper. Perfect for cutting the fat in beef or adding something to white meats. Continues to be one of the world’s best buys in red wine.
