Chile has a long winemaking tradition. In recent years his wines have received more attention around the world, both for their quality - and in some cases, their exceptional value. Here, we test two red wines from Chile - a Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon - and assess their quality and price points. Four geographic areas surrounding the Chilean wine region, the Andes to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Atacama Desert in the north and a series of claiers in the south. The barriers isolate Chile, the protection of the vineyards and the creation of a wide range of wine regions.Review, Caliterra Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon. The Caliterra Reserva Cabernet is a fairly inexpensive Chilean selection. It is from the Valle Central region of Chile. Caliterra is one of the larger wineries in Chile, produces almost half a million cases of wine a year.In the glass, shows Caliterra Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon as a very deep magenta. On the nose shows a dark, brooding, charred grape quality.the palate is like sweet and charcoal, which slightly sweetened, blackened plum fruit up into the sides of the mouth. Fat end, moving to alcohol. Three out of five stars. The price makes it an outstanding value.Find Caliterra Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva at WineZap.Review, Cono Sur Pinot Noir.Like Charlie Brown’s attempts to football that Lucy always gets up from his foot kick, I think try the elusive value Price-to-find Pinot Noir. Consider Cono Sur my last run in this so-far mostly unsuccessful effort.I is mentioned that I enjoy the Veranda Pinot Noir from Chile. But two caveats: the porch is from a different area, and sells for about twice the price of the Cono Sur.So, let’s see what the Cono Sur offers … In the glass it is bright, even, ruby red - bright, beautiful, but not suggestive of depth.The nose is promising - though clearly un-Pinot Noir-like. It is light, bright, almost floats - like a new, fresh beaujolais.Sipping, you notice a twang of Pinot Noir strawberry and a touch of Lemony acids. It brings the bright flavors of the center of your palate, then fades quickly to a high, easy to complete. Not to criticize, but not a worthy contender in my search for the “world’s best value Pinot Noir. Two out of five stars on the Spirit of Wine scale. My hunt continues … Find Cono Sur Pinot Noir to WineZap.
