Chile, move over. Moon Curser is working wonders with the South American country's signature red grape. And this is a wine worthy of comparison with some of Chile's better examples, which may be a consolation to those who find the price as frighteningly high as an Andes peak. Medium-full-bodied, it's unusually smooth for carménère, with luscious berries answered by notes of espresso, jalapeno and black pepper. Introduce it to a piece of char-grilled beef. Available direct, mooncurser.com.
