Chile


Chilcas Reserva Cab Sav Chilcas Reserva Cab Sav $11.00

Rich plum, blackcurrant and cassis show through on this full-bodied wine. Tannins and spicy oak are present and bring some chocolate and smoky coffee notes. Has some bright red raspberry tones as well, while maybe a touch rustic, its really a great deal.



Terrapura Carmenere Terrapura Carmenere $12.00

Lovely soft green pepper nose with mineral and an herbal touch blended with tobacco and flowers. Black fruits and dried figs on the nose combine with soft and juicy tannins and concentrated fresh fruit flavors. Fire up the BBQ and grill some steaks or Portobello mushrooms to eat alongside a glass. It would be great with Mexican food as well with its subtle spice notes.



Lagar de Bezana Cabernet Sauvignon Lagar de Bezana Cabernet Sauvignon $14.00

Small production, 2,500 cases a year, high altitude, single vineyard Cab from atop the Cachapoal mountain range in Chile. Showing blueberry, black fruit, bell pepper, vanilla and baking spice. Chewy tannin with a lingering finish. Begging for a ribeye and a fireplace.





Prisma Prisma $15.00

From the steep, high elevation vineyards of Casablanca, this sustainably farmed Sauv Blanc has everything going its way. Aromatic nose, bright palate, lemon, lime grapefruit and undertones of minerality. Mouth watering deliciousness, pairs excellent with a variety of foods.



ercole ercole $16.00

The world is awakening to Chilean Cab. This one has bright cassis and blackberry fruit with lots of toasty oak. Nicely balanced acidity with the fruit from a cooler but still sunny region in Chile.



Polkura Malbec Polkura Malbec $20.00

This Malbec from Chile gives Argentina a run for its money. Deep purple in color with an explosively aromatic nose of black currant, black cherry, mocha, clove and cinnamon. This full bodied wine shows the same dark fruit on the palate and an tight embrace of tannic muscle. Really shines with some fatty beef, this wine is oozing characcter.



Aluvion Lagar de Bezana Aluvion Lagar de Bezana $29.00

A Gran Reserva blend of Cab Sav, Syrah and Petite Verdot truly showing Chile's up and coming potential. Complex flavors of cassis, dried figs, and blackberries with touches of chocolate and a vibrant, tannic finish accented by notes of savory herb and spice.
