Cono Sur Bicicleta Limited Edition Pinot Noir 2016

From the winemaker:  “Dressed in fresh purple red colour, this is a voluptuous Pinot Noir with rich fruit notes of cherry, raspberry, plum and strawberry – a red fruit party! – enhanced by subtle smoked hints. In mouth sweet fruit notes stand out, and its fine tannins give it a great texture and a mouth filling structure. Balanced and New World styled, this is a wine of personality and elegance. Sexy, pure and simple, it’s a young and refreshing Pinot.”

THE BOTTOM LINE

Wouldn’t say I was deeply moved by this bottle.  I found it to be a bit too subtle for my palate.  Certainly a young wine.  At around $8, it does however represent a decent value for the Pinot Lover.
