My first wine post of the New Year is in keeping with predictions from the previous one. Chile is the wine drinkers new best friend, and there’s lots of good wine to be had under $10. Kawin is crafted in the yummy, plummy, rich style of a Merlot and there’s the smoothness and slight sweetness found in most reds from Mr Lurton. Sure to please on a cold January night. Forgot to note the year on the bottle, but whatever you get will be what I tasted.
