J. Bouchon 2015 red blend “Canto Sur, Maule Valley, Chile” ($15)

This blend of Carmenere, Carignan and Pais is an excellent buy that is impressively polished and well-rounded. There’s strength, full-body and light to medium tannins coupled with pleasing complexity, integration and length.

Ask your favorite store to order this wine for you. Prices may vary.
