Sickening. Easter Island is priceless. Chile will try to salvage what they can.
Stand in Solidarity with Chile and buy their wines!

I asked Andy Hale, Director of The Asheville School of Wine,
to suggest a bottle that speaks to holding on to tradition. And he said....

"This bottle has structure and balanced tannins. To find a California Cabernet
of this quality for $17.99 is just not happening. Under $20, a California Cabernet
can be too soft and, in the worst case, taste like a blend of kool aid and grape jelly.
But Clos des Fous is made old school. Showing respect for the benefits of age,
this 2015 is the current release. Great bottle. Built for food."
