WINE OF THE WEEK

June 28, 2000|By Michael Dresser

1999 Carmen Sauvignon Blanc Reserve, Valle de Casablanca ($12). This exemplary sauvignon blanc is a splendid example of the improvement of Chile's white wines. It's a full-bodied, yeasty, dry wine with flavors of honey, herbs, figs and well-integrated oak. This complex, intense wine ranks with many of the finer California sauvignons blancs in this price range. It's a natural to serve with grilled salmon, swordfish or chicken.-
