ECHEVERRÍA FAMILY RESERVA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015
Molina, DO Curicó Valley, Chile
000737 (XD) 750 mL $21.95
TASTING NOTE: Echeverría uses a selection of its very best grapevines in the Molina region, in Curicó, to produce the Family Reserva—its top Curican wine. This version is a little gem that boasts smoky aromas, a spicy kick and strong earthy tones, topped off with a deeply dense red fruit flavour. Highly elegant and complex, it will only get better if left to age for a few months.
Score: 93 (Patricio Tapia, Descorchados Wine Guide, 2018)

Featured in Valleys of the Kings
CHÂTEAU ROQUEVIEILLE 2014
AC Côtes de Bordeaux – Castillon, France
552661 (XD) 750 mL $20.95
TASTING NOTE: Polished, with an ample toasty frame as the ganache notes ride alongside the dark plum and blackberry fruit. The finish is laced with singed juniper and bay accents, adding range and depth. Well done. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2024.Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
