Casablanca Valey, Chile
$34.99 approximate retail
(available in BC early 2009)

With a rich nose of black cherry, plum and cassis, you’d think you had a Merlot or soft Cabernet in your glass. The palate is equally deceiving: soft and full, with sweet red and black fruits, leather and fresh herbs. Moderate acidity and tannins to hold the fruit up. Not a textbook Pinot, but a certain crowd-pleaser. 89 points – Very Good
