(posted: May 22nd, 2017)

Wine glasses filled with red and white wines

In this column, published about once a quarter, David shares his passion for and expert knowledge of fine wines. In each post he offers several selections that provide great value.

He identifies wines for drinking now, which ones to put away for several years, and those that are worth enjoying now and laying in a supply for future enjoyment.

Enjoy David's Wine Picks, and let us know if there is something you'd like David to review in a future column.

Chilean Wines

Who says drinking good wine is too expensive? If that's you, then perhaps a little taste of the wines from Chile will change your mind.

There are some very highly rated reds and whites that are very reasonable with great after taste and lush apple and pear (white) or flavors of cherry and plum (red). Here are a few of my favorites:

Winemaker & Region Year Wine Spectator Rating Price
Matetic, Syrah - San Antonio Valley Corralillo 2014 92 $28
Vina Estampa, Cabernet Sauvignon - Colchagua Valley Reserve 2015 91 $19
Chateau Los Boldos, Cabernet Sauvignon - Cachapoal Grand Reserve 2014 90 $17

Vina Santa Rita, Pinot Noir - Aconcagua Valley 120 2015 88 $8

  • 95 - 100 Classic, a great wine
