The Full Review

It’s time to take a new look at Chilean wine. It’s not the bargain wine you are used to. More and more great wine from the Andes are on our market, like this one. At a quarter of the price of  high-end Cali red blend, this wine has what you are looking for. Tight, dark, focused fruit, with slight peppery notes. There is a little more acidity here than on the west coast too, so this wine won't weigh down your palate, but make that meat dish you're preparing taste like it was awarded five stars.
