Fruity and rich with a hint of spice and cocoa. Soft and easy drinking. Perfect burger wine and priced right too.

Fruity on the dry side. Dark berries, medium body and spicy toward the end. Good for value.

It is not my "go to" wine for a special meal or when a company is expected but for a casual family meal it is a great wine.

Surdyks Spring 2015 Sale - $5.99 (compare at $8.99)

Staff Selection (Drew Fuller): South American wines are extremely popular, and this wine from Santa Rita is a great example of why the are in such high demand. Chile is blessed with unique geographic conditions with ocean along its entire western coast and the Andes mountain range on the east separating Chile from its neighbor, Argentina. The 2013 “Hero’s Salute” is composed of 65% Cabernet Franc, 25% Carmenere, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. These grapes come from the Central Valley, which has a Mediterranean climate with high temperature swings from day to night to ensure plentiful acidity, and warm sun to promote fully ripened grapes. The aromas show blueberry, cassis and blackberry fruit, with hints of vanilla, spice and tobacco. The palate displays a lush, sweet quality that is balanced out nicely by just enough acidity to keep the wine lively and focused. All of this in a wine whose everyday price is $8.00
