    The nose is strawberry preserves and grape confection. Flavors of red cherries blackberries , chalk dust, bramble and black spice. nice acidity. I would slightly chill this bottle and then pair it with a charcuterie platter. Please feel free to do the same!

    This lifts brightly out of the glass with hints of crunchy cranberry, cedar, fresh cracked pepper, and exotic spices. On the palate it keeps up with the bright fruit, juicy acidity, and lots of perfume. This has the texture of a ripe Pinot with bright fruit, mouth-watering acidity, and an easy-going herbal character. Superb value!

    This is my official back porch red! I love a versatile red wine and the 2016 J Bouchon Canto Sur Maule Valley Red is perfect for so many occasions. Great as a picnic red thanks to its easy going red fruit feel, great when it is a bit hot because you can give it a slight chill and enjoy it the same way you would a Beaujolais. A pretty, high-toned red with nice fruit notes and an excellent savory, earthy streak this is a fine value!!

    Beautifully aromatic with spice, ripe fruit and hint of eucalyptus. Balanced palate with just the right amount mix of fruit and acidity. This wine is very approachable now and can be paired with nutty cheeses or alone. Great for an everyday wine!

    Red fruits really dominate this wine, making it a super fun, approachable red blend that's just rockin' for Summer and rolling into Fall. Juicy bright fruit and a medium weighted palate are showcased and the flavors are really expressive and punchy. This is certainly an easy-drinking, but not over-simplified, wine which would be as fun to drink with food as it is on its own. I will definitely be happy to drink this one any night of the week.

    This is a stellar blend of Carmenere, Carignan and Pais. The Maule Valley is the largest and one of the oldest growing regions in Chile. The valley offers many different soil types and micro climates, which leads to beautiful aromatics and complexity. The nose opens up into ripe raspberries, crushed black pepper, fresh roasted coffee beans, rich coaco and sun kissed wild flowers. It has nice acidity, balanced tannins, lush fruit and exotic spices on the palate.

    Canto sur translates roughly as "Southern Song," and is both an ode to the more southerly Maule Valley as well as the grapes which have made it their home. A blend of Carignane, Pais (Mission) and Carmenere, I cannot think of a red blend that is more proudly Chilean than this! Fortunately these also happen to be highly compatible grapes for blending, which you can immediately tell from this charming and authentic wine. The nose offers something brightly fruited, with some slightly savory and scruffy wild herbs as well , and the palate shows everything I love about these grapes, particularly the juicy and mouthwatering Carignane fruit and the tense, focused, slightly tannic Pais. Any wine as delicious, honest, and expressive as this for under $12 is a big win!
