2014 Ritual Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley Top Pick!
2014 Ritual Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley

93 points James Suckling: "Crushed ripe strawberries with blackberries. Some mineral undertones too. Full body, firm tannins, and a fresh and racy finish. Shows some granite and slate as well. Balanced, fruity style." (7/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This fruity, friendly Pinot opens with ripe berry aromas mixed with touches of minerality and latex. It feels fresh and sturdy, with black cherry and raspberry flavors. A pure, sweet, lightly chocolaty finish wraps things up." (8/2015) Wine Spectator: "A juicy and savory red, with touches of richness to the cherry and crushed red plum flavors. Notes of bergamot linger on the le ...Read More »

2013 Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca Valley

90 points James Suckling: "A crisp and lively Sauvignon Blanc with lemon peel and hints of mineral character. Medium body, bright finish. Where are the oysters? Drink now. Screw cap." (8/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc comes from different vineyards in the cool Casablanca valley from an extremely cold vintage, which has its own character. Looking more like a Loire in texture, but with the ripeness and volume of the New World, it is clean and fresh, zesty, easy to drink, with notes of citric fruit and peach that makes you salivate and have the next sip, thanks to its salinity and high ...Read More »

Drink or hold." (8/2014)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Grillos Cantores Cabernet Sauvignon uses grapes from the Grillos Cantores (singing crickets) vineyard in the Alto Cachapoal on calcareous gravels, the blend of four different micro-terroirs, fermented and aged in cement vats.

2013 Kingston Family Vineyards/K&L Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley Top Pick!
2013 Kingston Family Vineyards/K&L Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley

Coming from a single, small tank of press wine from their Casablanca Valley vineyards, located close to the coolin influence of the Pacific, this is delicious Pinot Noir! Brightly fruited, and bolstered by firm tannins that provide structure without distraction, I would be hard pressed to think of a tastier, more honest expression of Pinot, especially if what you are after is a highly drinkable wine that does not aim to be the biggest, the most fruity or the most highly awarded. This is a great deal in everyday Pinot! (Joe Manekin, K&L Chilean wine buyer... Read More »

Drink or hold" (8/2014) K&L Notes: Based in the Maipo Valley just south of Santiago, Santa Ema has been quietly, reliably producing very good value Cabernet Sauvignon for many years now. However, they clearly have re-doubled their efforts, changing up a bit their winemaking approach and the result is this juicy, purely fruited, elegant, medium bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. At 13.5% ABV, it is incredibly delicious and honest Caberne... Read More »

2012 Meli Carignane Maule Valley

92 points Wine & Spirits: "There are very few Carignans like this in Chile. Made from old vines planted in the 1960s, this takes a light, fresh approach, focused on fruit rather than pushing for superconcentration. With its pure, juicy ripe cherry flavor, it could bolster a plate of grilled sausages or develop for a few years in the cellar."

2012 Laura Hartwig Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Colchagua Valley

Consisting of 80 hectares in the Colchagua Valley, Laura Hartwig works biodynamically to cultivate her grapes. This particular Cabernet is very well made, showing off beautiful currant and berry fruits, with admirable restraint, balance and texture combining to create an elegant, seamless cab if it were twice the price, let alone for the under $15 asking price. Very impressive! (Joe Manekin, K&L South American Wine Buyer)

2013 Bodegas Re "Syragnan" Maule Valley

It’s monumental in size, with rustic tannins and acidity that accentuates the ripe black fruit and spice. Give this five years or more to come into balance and build complexity." (2/2015) K&L Notes: Bodegas Re (pronounced "Ray") is a small, family owned bodega located right in the town of Casablanca, in the heart of the Casablanca Valley.

2012 Peñalolen Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley

Based in Chile's Maipo Valley, home of some of the most established Cabernet vines in South America, Penalolen's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific followup to the very strong, fast-selling 2011. Dark and red cherry fruit flavors once again show a hint of savory balance (no fruit bomb, here) with good poise and perhaps just a hint less ripeness than the prior vintage. It's another solid effort that far exceeds the quality of most under $20 California Cabs, and stands toe to toe with the best examples. (Joe Manekin, K&L Argentinean & Chilean wine buyer...

2006 Aquitania "Lazuli" Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Closing in on ten years of age, this wine is beginning to show the complexity of classic Cabernets grown in Macul, one of the highest districts in the Alto Maipo, close to Santiago. Age has amplified the herb scents, offering their fresh notes while the fruit flavors remain backstage, behind tannins that still feel youthful and energetic, giving the wine its profound depths. An elegant Alto Maipo Cabernet." (6/2015)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Lazuli is a selection of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the best plots with deep soils.

2010 Calyptra "Assemblage" Red Blend Cachapoal Valley

Based in the Alto Cachapoal, about an hour and a half southwest of Santiago, Calyptra has beautiful vineyard sites, located on alluvial and colluvial terraces very close to the Cachapoal river, at over 2,900 feet of altitude in the foothills of the Andes. These are wines that are mineral (thanks to gravelly and slightly calcareous soil) as well as polished.

2012 Bodegas Re "Chardonnoir" Single Vineyard Casablanca Valley

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnoir is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir vinified in white, and the rest Chardonnay. The idea here was to show the base of a sparkling wine and to explain how a red grape can produce a white wine with elegance and volume, and to get away from Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay as almost the only source of whites in Chile. The Pinot Noir is pressed and fermented in French barrels, the same as the Chardonnay, but separately. It has a nose of chalk and orange rind intermixed with notes of nuts, a medium to full-bodied palate with high acidity (no malol ...Read More »

2013 Casa Silva Carmenere Colchagua Valley

In Chile, Casa Silva is synonymous with Carmenere, as theirs is the winery that has arguably put the most time, effort and investment into this relatively recently understood and appreciated grape variety. Only recently understood, because until the mid to late 1990s, much of it was confused with Merlot, picked way too early, and quite honestly not a star grape. These days Carmenere, originally of Bordelaise origin, is valued as a distinctly Chilean specialty. Generally the last grape variety picked (harvest is commonly in May, or the equivalent of Novem...

(6/2015) K&L Notes: Bright, crisp, dry Pedro Ximenez (yes, they do grow this grape perhaps best known for sweet Sherry in other regions and countries as well!), the Mayu comes from Chile's Elqui Valley, an area known for great soil complexity, with calcareous and granitic elements. Zesty white with lime blossom and tangy, just ripened kiwi notes. Delicious! (Joe Manekin, K&L Chilean wine buyer)

They are unique to the regions of the Maule, Itata and Bio-Bío Valleys, which are some of Chile's most traditional and rural wine regions, and also the regions that are most commonly dry farmed. Colonel de Maule is one of the more structured, masculine and grippy Pipeño wines, coming from a warmer site in the Maule Valley.

Casa Marin is located in a very cool area, just a few kilometers from the sea, and it has a much stronger Pacific influence than Chile's main region for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, the Casablanca Valley. In a cold vintage like 2013, this Pinot Noir shows muscular fruit balanced by great granite driven minerality as well. It is structured and capable of improving in bottle for at least 4-6 years. A Pinot Noir producer to watch! (Joe Manekin, K&L Chilean & Argentinean wine buyer)

This is superb for a second wine. It has a crisp nose of shiny red berries and just a hint of grass with a fresh, light-bodied palate, like a red cherry juice, with tension and acidity.

Kingston Family Vineyards is one of our favorite projects in South America, owing in no small part to Portola Valley's own Courtney Kingston and her family's approach to winemaking in the cooler climate Casablanca Valley.

Casablanca Valley is a cooler climate, coastal section of Chile not particularly well known for its syrah. Contrary to what everyone told them, though, the Kingstons planted Syrah here and, as the wines show, the potential is clearly there for very good wine. Deep dark fruit aromatics lead to a generous, spicy blue and purple skinned fruited palate, with hints of black tea towards the finish. Cool climate syrah, somewhere between a richer, fruitier new world style and the brighter, more subtle and mineral expressions for which the northern Rhone is famo... Read More »
