2010 Concha y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Don Melchor, Chile, Puente Alto, Wine Review

Always nice to try this flagship wine of Chile.  Purple/ruby in color.  The nose has cassis, roasted herbs, and slight roasted meat.  On the palate, this is black cherries with underlying graphite.  The wine had been decanted for a few hours and needed every bit of it.  Medium tannins at that point.  It is deep and powerful but nicely balanced.  Long finish.  Went great with roasted eggplant and other veggies.  There may still be some upside but even if not, this is terrific now and should be at this level for at least another  decade.  

2015 Garage Wine Co. Cinsault The Soothsayers Ferment, Chile, Secano Interior - Wine Review

This is very good.  It should be available for around $25 or perhaps a bit less in your market.  Quite unusual.  Ruby in color.  The nose is cherries, with a slight botanical note.  interesting.  On the palate, it has a nice complexity to it.  Cherries, candied cherries, earthy and slight vermouth notes.  Nice texture.  Good acidity.  Works better with food.  Good finish.  Looking ofr something that's not the same old, same old - this is perfect.  

2011 Ventisquero Sauvignon Blanc Yali Wetland, Chile, Rapel Valley - Wine review

Very nice value for this under $10 per bottle wine.  This vintage is getting a bit long in the tooth but I suspect younger vintages are showing much better.  Light gold/green in color.  The nose has slight tropical fruit and a bit of oxidation.  On the palate, this has a nice enough crispness.  Fruit is present but faded.  Not much depth but still alive and drinking nicely.  On a budget, this is worth checking out.  

2016 Chakana Chardonnay Estate Selection, Argentina

Light gold in color with slight green.  On the nose, there is grapefruit and slight lumber.  Also some spice.  On the palate, there is a tart acidity which is very nice.  Grapefruit and citrus notes.  Long finish.  Really a quality Chardonnay for under $20, its hard to beat that value.
