Peaceful Chile

This winter i’ve committed to trying new wines at the LCBO and i think i’ve found the best aisle in the store – Argentina to the right of me and Chile to the left. I’m no historian but it seems like these countries even get along. They coexistence peacefully in the wine store at least.

Right now my new favourite wine for under $10 is the Santa Rita 120 Cab Franc / Carmenere / Cab Sav blend. I like the fresh Cabernet Franc taste and i love the price.

Hey, turns out that “120” refers to 120 Chilean freedom fighters who took on the Spanish Independence  war of 1814 and hid in the Santa Rita cellars. Doesn’t sound very peaceful anymore.
