Forget Chile?
Is it just me, or are people beginning to forget about Chile? When I first started drinking wine seriously, about 10 years ago, Chile was right on the cusp of becoming the hot new wine nation. By the time the 90s were in relatively full swing, so was Chile; for a stretch of several months in '94 or '95, it seemed that every dinner party I attended, small or large, featured a few bottles of Concha Y Toro cabernet sauvignon, a solid red produced by one of the Maipo Valley's premier wineries (and still sold, incidentally, for a song). Los Vascos made numerous appearances, as well.
