Inexpensive Fall Wines



Founded in 1987, Click Wine Group is a Seattle-based company that owns and imports wine from around the world. Their portfolio is made up of two acclaimed collections: the Global Wine Collection and Peter Click Selections. They often feature consumer friendly packaging aimed at taking the intimidation out of wine. Click has a wine for every palate and autumnal occasion. To meet growing consumer demand, Root: 1 recently added two new varietals ($10-$13) to its lineup: a smooth, richly flavored Carmenere and a crisp, fresh Chardonnay. Carmenere is Chile’s signature varietal, a deep colored, full-bodied wine that offers the charm of Merlot and the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon. Produced in Colchaugua Valley, Root: 1 Carmenere is deep red in color with gentle tannins and rich flavors of plum, blackberry and spice. Root: 1 Chardonnay has a a fine balance of fruit and acidity and is not the heavily oaked kind that has become a wine snob’s cliché. Grown in the cool, coastal Casablanca Valley, renowned for producing the best white wines in South America, Root:1 Chardonnay is fresh, expressive and balanced with melon, honey and toasted hazelnut flavors. Also well worth trying is the Root 1: Sauvingnon Blanc, a crisp wine with citrus notes and a fresh, clean finish.
