Staff Pick Notes

What a find!!! Our buyers really found a winner this time. Chono represents the coming-of-age of Cabernet Sauvignon in Chile. This wine is from the Maipo Valley, with its hot days, cool nights, and sandy soils. It has a beautiful nose and palate of fresh red and blackberries. The texture is smooth with soft tannins and the finish is spicy. I could just sip this by itself, but the real beauty of it comes out when I have it with my favorite beef dishes. At this price, it's worthy of buying a case or two to ration over the next 12 months until the next vintage becomes available. Think about using it for your next party, be it a wedding, engagement, or graduation.

It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California,...
