Chilean winery, Casa Marin, Pumping Out Quality and Variety – For Corkd.com

Chilean winery, Casa Marin, Pumping Out Quality and Variety
When offered the chance to review some wines from Chile, I was pretty excited. Over the years, wines from Chile have always appealed to me, thanks to their easy drinking nature and affordability. Five years ago or so, I started exploring some of the more serious producers that Chile had to offer and generally stocked my cellar with the likes of Vina Almaviva, Don Melchor, Montes offerings, along with Alpha M & Purple Angel, and Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta. Big, red wines – single varietal or blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and the famous Carmenere.

    nice article, and looking forward to future reviews…tell your editor that they missed the “pallet” for “palate” typo though…
    the first time I tasted chilean reds back in the late 80′s I was interested by the pricing, but when we finally went to visit the in-laws in the late 90′s, the gorgeous reds of the Alta Maipo completed the seduction and I have always looked for real quality plays from Chile since. Have a few years of the Don Melchor in the cellar as well…but just had the Errazuriz Single Vineyard Saivignon Blanc from the Casablance…very clean, crisp, and great minerality…

    Burro thanks for checking out the article- back in the 80′s man you could have set up shop and owned Chile back then not many people knew wines coming out of there. I have a few Don Melchors also but I felt once the price skyrocketed it became not such a great value- I loved the wine under $40 but it seemed to skip right into the $50′s for a few years. Sorry but it seems my comment never posted to the blog- they are here in my comment system but never posted- I think the whites from Chile have a great future.

    Burro thanks for checking out the article- back in the 80u2032s man you could have set up shop and owned Chile back then not many people knew wines coming out of there. I have a few Don Melchors also but I felt once the price skyrocketed it became not such a great value- I loved the wine under $40 but it seemed to skip right into the $50u2032s for a few years.

    I just saw that this year’s release price for the Don is $80.nAi, chucha!nThe 2007s should be awesome though, based on the vintage…getting hard to donkey up for those pesos though..

    Yeah I think it has gone to a higher price point than I want to pay for that wine- If it stayed under $50 I would still buy
