Wine Find: 2010 Crucero Cabernet Sauvignon

Wines

From: Colchagua Valley, Chile

Price: $24 for a 3-liter box

Serve with: Carne asada or other grilled meat

With every passing year, more excellent wines become available in 3-liter boxes, which are the equivalent of four standard wine bottles. If they weren't an excellent way to deliver wine, you wouldn't get a great importer like Kysela bringing in wines like this full-bodied, spicy red from Chile. It offers bright, blackcurrant fruit with hints of vanilla and spices. It's young and brash but there's real quality here. It's a natural for a barbecue gathering as the weather gets warmer.
