  • Santa Digna Carmenere Reserva — This unique red tastes of cranberry, green pepper and black pepper with a dry, dusty finish. $13 btl, $6 btg
  • Botalcura “El Delirio” – This Carmenere is blended with a touch of Merlot to create a rich, full-bodied red tasting of plum, cherry, tobacco, and a hint of olive. $14 btl, $7 btg
  • Alcance Grand Reserva — Lush black fruits and blueberries combine with Asian spices and elegant tannins for a layered red with a dry finish. $22 btl, $8 btg
