For 11 bucks, you get cherries, cola, and surprisingly great balance for a Pinot on this level. Keep a case on hand for: surprise company, surprise raises, surprise blizzards, surprise dance parties.
I find that a lot of people think almost exclusively about red wines when they think about South American regions. I get it, Malbec and Carmenère are delicious, but if you’ve never tried Chilean Sauvignon Blanc you really need to give it a go. It’s generally more restrained than the stuff from New Zealand and shows really pretty floral notes to boot!
