  • 10 Vina Leyda “Lot 21″ Pinot Noir (Leyda Valley): Amazingly fresh & textbook red-berry PN. Beats the pants off more pricey CA stuff $38 B+ #
  • 10 Los Vascos Rose (Colchagua): Wow, a Cab-based Rose that actually is fruity and refreshing & doesn’t go down harsh. Sign me up. $10 B- #
  • 09 Morande Pinot Noir (Casablanca): Talk about overachieving. Vibrant with red berry, rose petals & a little grit. And a lot to like. $11 B #
  • 10 Emiliana “Eco Balance” Sauvignon Blanc (Bio-Bio): Crazy bargain for starfruit lovers. Cut grass & lime make a nice appearance, too. $7 B- #
  • 06 Casa Silva “Microterroir” De Los Lingues Carmenere (Colchagua): Excellent stuff, but you’d better love Carmenere big-time! $50 B+ #
  • 09 Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Carmenere (Apalta): Seamless transition from red to blue to black fruits. Killer structure, too (age it) $26 B #
  • 09 Vina Vik red (Millahue): Stunning debut for French-inspired Chilean super-premium Bord’x blend. Looking fwd to what they do in 10 $100 A- #
  • 06 Hall “Bergfeld” Cabernet Sauvignon (St. Helena): Tense structure belies some seriously delicious, velvety, fruity complexity. $100 A- #
  • 07 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Never mix your reds (bright, dark cherry fruit) & your greens (too much herbal action). $40 B #
  • 07 Trinchero Haystack Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Atlas Peak): The structure and focus scream “take me to the steakhouse, beeeach!” $50 A- #
  • 07 Trinchero Mario’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): There’s chalk-sprinkled violets growing out of those tasty dark plums $50 B+ #
  • 08 Trinchero Chicken Ranch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford): “Overachiever” written all over it in its mineral-driven dust. $40 B+ #
  • 08 Trinchero Chicken Ranch Vineyard Merlot (Rutherford): Soft finish to an otherwise full-driving race of ripe red fruits & olive. $40 B #
