2013 Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca Valley Top Pick!
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 »

2011 Clos des Fous "Grillos Cantores" Cabernet Sauvignon Alto Cachapoal Top Pick!
2011 Clos des Fous "Grillos Cantores" Cabernet Sauvignon Alto Cachapoal

92 points James Suckling: "This is a Cabernet with dark berry, chocolate and hazelnut character. Full body, fine tannins and a delicious finish. Balanced. The wood and fruit are in harmony. 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. It has a pure, Graves-like aroma, without interference from wood. It is delineated and pure, with bright notes of cassis, raspberry leaf an ...Read More »

2013 Ritual Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley

94 points James Suckling: "A dense and wonderfully long and silky Pinot with strawberry, light hazelnut and hints of lemon peel. Full body, yet lively and wired. This gives competition to Sea Smoke Pinot but at half to one-third the price" (6/2014) K&L Notes: Ritual is Veramonte's top label, a collaborative effort of the Huneeus family with Paul Hobbs to produce a premium, yet affordable, Pinot Noir from the Casablanca Valley.

2012 Meli Carignane Maule Valley Top Pick!
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." (6/2014)90 points James Suckling: "A spicy and balanced red with blueberries, blackberries and hints of slate. Full to medium body, fresh acidity and a clean finish. A stylish red. Drink now." (8/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark purple. Ripe plum and blueberry on the deeply scented nose. Plush ...Read More »

2012 Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Maipo Valley Top Pick!
2012 Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Maipo Valley

92 points James Suckling: "Precise and bright with blueberries, minerals and violet aromas. Full body plus ultra-fine tannins and a caressing texture. Very, very fine. 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 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 Errazuriz "Manzanar Vineyard" Chardonnay Aconcagua Costa

95 points James Suckling: "This a phenomenal white with sliced apple, papaya, and chalk with hints of slate. Turns to limes. Full body, with bright acidity and a racy acidity that goes on for minutes with the fruit. Dry austerity at the end gives it incredible character. This was fermented and aged in second and third year oak. Ten months. A triumph. A reductive structured style. Screw cap. Drink now." (6/2014)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay Wild Ferment Aconcagua Costa, from vineyards planted in 2004-2005 on schist soils on the coastal part of the Aconcagua valley, 10-12 kilometers from the s ...Read More »

2011 Calcu Cabernet Franc Colchagua Valley

At Calcu, they are convinced that the next Big Thing in Chile is Cabernet Franc. God bless 'em if they think that Cabernet Franc will ever explode in popularity the way that Argentine Malbec recently has, or that Pinot Noir has in the past decade. Nonetheless, we love Cabernet Franc, especially one so textbook and attractively priced as this. Savory, spicy dark cherry fruit aromas lead to a snappy Cab Franc palate, showing a well balanced combination of just ripened red stone fruits, subtle herbaceous tones and a tasty, dry finish. My notes read: "Chil... Read More »

2011 Concha y Toro "Amelia" Chardonnay Casablanca Valley (Elsewhere $50)

91 points Antonio Galloni: "Light, bright yellow. Smoke- and oak spice-accented aromas of fresh pineapple, pear and honeydew melon, with a suave floral overtone. Shows very good intensity, breadth and clarity on the palate, with an array of orchard and tropical fruit flavors braced by tangy acidity. Finishes spicy and very long, with lingering ginger and smoke notes and a touch of anise. This is consistently among the very best white wines made in Chile. (Josh Raynolds)" (2/2014)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Amelia Chardonnay, sourced from the clay red soils of Las Petras Vineyard in Casablanca, is a re ...Read More »

2012 Laura Hartwig Carmenere Reserva Colchagua Valley

Laura Hartwig works biodynamically to cultivate her grapes on 80 hectares in the Colchagua Valley. Her Carmenere is that rare breed that combines the delicious, earthy herbaceous quality of Carmenere with beautiful fruit flavors, perhaps more purple skinned, darker fruits this particular vintage. Think traditional, Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux here; the wine has a similar structure and sense of subtle, savory elegance. Quite good, indeed. (Joe Manekin, K&L South American Wine Buyer)

2011 Almaviva Proprietary Red Puente Alto

95 points James Suckling: "This shows wonderful length with subtle dark fruits as well as mint, floral and walnut undertones. Full body, with fine tannins that give this wine energy and focus. It's long and flavorful. A blend of 67% cabernet sauvignon, 25% carmenere, 5% cabernet franc, 2% merlot and 1% petit verdot. Give this until 2017 to soften." (6/2014)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Almaviva, from a cool, dry vintage, is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot which feels young, fresh, serious and quite classical-styled with notes of cassis, graphite and ripe black ...Read More »

2014 Pipeño Pais "Coronel de Maule" Maule Valley (1.0L)

Pipeño wines are honest, humble, small scale, traditionally made Chilean wines of the most recent harvest. 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. It is full of dark-fruited, spicy personality, without sacrificing delicious fruit and drinkability. If we needed yet another re... Read More »

2010 Calyptra Chardonnay Gran Reserva Cachapoal Valley

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chardonnay Gran Reserva has a golden color and a nose of yeast and lees. A little reductive a la Coche-Dury, with echoes of toasted sesame seeds and ripe yellow fruit, the wine is ripe and big, in a Burgundian style, more Meursault than Puligny. It is a big wine indeed, full-bodied, with intense flavors, not shy at all, wearing its 15% alcohol with elegance and flair. This impressive Chardonnay fermented in inox and aged in oak barriques for two years, but it has the stuffing to take that aging without problems. A chalky minerality, almost salin ...Read More »

2013 Casa Marin Sauvignon Blanc "Los Cipreses" Lo Abarca San Antonio Valley

Casa Marin is located in a very cool area, one with a much stronger Pacific influence than Chile's main region for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, the Casablanca Valley. In the poor, granitic soils, the winery manages to consistenly make one of Chile's best Sauvignon Blancs, and certainly one of the world's great examples of this grape variety, particularly at under $20.

2009 Kingston Family Vineyards "Alazan" Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley

Densely packed, but lively red and dark berry flavors provide excellent palate coverage and pick up a smoky note with aeration. Supple and sweet on the finish, which leaves notes of candied red fruits behind. This sexy wine is drinking well now."

2011 Cousiño-Macul "Antiguas Reservas" Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley

(8/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon is the wine that made a name for Cousino Macul when it was fermented and aged in big Rauli wood vats that were abandoned around 20 years ago in favor of stainless steel and barriques, where the wine now ages for one year. This is now a medium-range wine, and their best grapes are used for the Lota brand. This is a classical Cabernet Sauvignon from Macul and Buin, wit ...Read More »

2013 Leyda Sauvignon Blanc "Garuma Vineyard" Single Vineyard Leyda Valley

93 points Wine & Spirits: "This wine shows its minerality through the force of its acidity; it’s completely focused on flavors of stones and salt, as if there were no grapes involved in making it at all. The wine is refreshing and firm, poised to take on anything you might find at a raw bar. Garuma is a 20-acre vineyard, planted mostly with Clone 1, the first of the sauvignon clones to be imported into Chile, and one that gives wines with a lot of structure and acidity."

This particular pipeño is from the relatively cooler, damp Bio-Bío region, and is so light and refreshing, while still betraying the Mission grape's somewhat wild personality and firm tannin structure.

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...

2012 Kingston "Cariblanco" Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca Valley

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This small-production Sauvignon Blanc (700 cases) overdelivers on its price by a factor of two or three times. It gets going with crisp, crystalline aromas of passion fruit and briny grapefruit. A pure, juicy, ripped palate offers lime, grapefruit, tangerine and herb flavors, while the finish is minerally and clean." (9/2013) Wine Spectator: "This is filled with dried herb, grapefruit, candied orange and quince flavors, with a zesty finish that features notes of celery salt and lime. Drink now.

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)

2007 Cousiño Macul "Antiguas Reservas" Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley

90+ points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reserva remains one of the finest Cabernet values anywhere (the price has remained unchanged for years). Fragrant black currants and blackberry aromas promise complexity with several years of additional bottle age. Nicely structured on the palate, this elegant, Bordeaux-like Cabernet will evolve for a minimum of five years and drink well through 2025.

2011 Tunquen Malbec Casablanca Valley

This is a terrific new Chilean Malbec we recently tasted. Yes, you read that correctly, Chilean (not Argentinean) Malbec! Tunquen is a cool project. A couple of Brazilians named Atilio and Mochi, both passionate wine folks, desigined a winery out of an insulated container they chose to locate on a beach near Valparaiso. Their Malbec is utterly delicious and while it shows the juicy, expressive darker berry fruit of Argentinean Malbec, the acidity is more marked and there is an appealing wild side to this as well, all while retainining a refreshing relati...

2010 Viña Maquis "Lien" Red Blend Colchagua Valley

Acidity sets the pace with its tension in the mouth, providing freshness to highlight the red fruit flavors. This is a great vintage for Maquis,taking Colchagua fruit usually voluptuous and sweet in a tart and austere direction."

In an Old World style, with the depth to handle richer foods but plenty of vivacity as well."
