Extremes exude excellence. Whether you are considering the extreme nature of Chile's diverse geography, or the adventurous spirit and character of the people who live there, Chile is one of the most extreme countries and stunning wine regions on the earth.

Wines:

1.Vina Calina Sauvignon Blanc    $10.99

Aromas of fresh citrus, peaches, melons, tropical fruit and hints of minerality. On the palate, the wine is lush and crisp, with bright fruit followed by hints of butter and light oak on the lingering finish.

2. Siegel Crucero Chardonnay    $10.99

Siegel Crucero Chardonnay has an attractive yellow color with some green tones. Its intense varietal character evokes ripe citrus fruits, with floral and honeyed tones along with well integrated wood. In the mouth it is rich, round and fruity with some creamy notes.

3. Siegel 1234 Reserva Red Blend   $11.99

This is 50% Syrah, 30% Carmenère and the rest Petit Verdot and Cab Franc. In the mouth, this feels pulpy but dry. Leafy herbal plum and olive flavors finish firm but with continuous herbal flavors.

4.Vina Calina Carmenere   $9.99

The Calina Carménère has a dark, inky color with intense aromas of ripe black cherries, fresh berries, spice and fresh herbs. The tannins are well-integrated, providing underlying structure to support the wine's opulent fruit.

5. Ventisquero  Grey Glacier Cabernet Sauvignon $19.99

90 p Wine Enthusiast

Spicy aromas of eucalyptus, juniper, asphalt, toasty oak and berry fruits are textbook for the Maipo Valley. This is tight and focused on the palate but a bit rough. Rooty spice, chocolaty oak and herbal berry flavors finish full and with tannic scratch.

Wines will be accompanied by a selection of cheeses, crackers, artisanal breads &olive oil. The cost for one flight (a sample of each of the wines) will be $12.
