      Wine Reviews: South American Values

      Terroirist: A Daily Wine Blog - - 3 readers - South America has been a haven for value-driven wines for years.

      Simple Wine Talk - - 3 readers - Colchagua Valley, Chille First of all, if you find a Cab this good for $10, I want to know about it!

Carmenere and Merlot look very similar but ripen differently.

Good but not great B(+) Edna Valley Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012, Central Coast, California (£12.99 Majestic) The warm, bruised, sour cherry character is OK, but the Jammie Dodger character to the fruit speaks of overripeness.
