Cono Sur Reserva Especial Pinot Noir 2011

Certainly a strong contender in the silly name derby, this Chilean red from the maritime Casablanca Valley has elements of cherry, plum, blackberry and vanilla, with enough oak induced acidity to give it a desirable edge. A nice enough wine, but at $12.99 it runs into some pretty stiff competition.
