Down goes Chilensis! Down, goes, Chilensis!

Hi!  When you’re done reading, please contribute to the survey, by leaving a comment below.

My review of Chilensis pinot noir said it’s $9 a bottle, making this a value monster.  But Premier Wine in Delaware is now selling it for just $7.99.  Wow — after discovering this delicious bargain pinot, the last thing I expected was to see the price go down. And no, Delaware’s prices are not super low — Georgia and Florida are lower, for example.  

Chilensis pinot now displaces Five Rivers cabernet sauvignon as the most astounding red wine value that I’m aware of.  With the $7 Rosemount shiraz a close third.  Five Rivers and Rosemount are more crowd-pleasing than Chilensis pinot.  But if you love pinot, or you like that leathery South American wine thing, Chilensis is unbeatable.  Almost as unbeatable as George Foreman against the world’s heavyweight champion Joe Frazier, which you might want to skip if you have a delicate constitution:

SURVEY:  add a comment below, telling us your favorite red wine value.  Any price range is fine — we’re talking great value here, not just rock-bottom price.
