Viña Morandé (Comments)
What: Great reds from Maipo and Maule and refreshing, exotic whites from Casablanca Valley.
Standout: The exuberant, round and chocolate 2005 Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon (US$17).
Where: The winery is in the Cachapoal Valley; the main vineyards are in Maipo, Casablanca and Maule.
When: Save the Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon for roasted lamb this winter; pour the 2007 Reserva Sauvignon Blanc (US$12) now with sea bass ceviche.
