A very strong lineup across the board and excellent values, too.” Dennis Attick, Decatur Wine Dude “ I have to say, I really like [the Carmen] very diff than the others - I find some chocolate in the mid palate especially with the steak.” Matt Horbund, A Good Time with Wine “ Have to say I’m curious to compare this to that 2006 bottle we originally got. I get cocoa powder on this. I rather like it.” Michelle Lentz, My Wine Education “ Terra Andina - like this one, blueberry liqour with very slight hints of sauerkraut.” Frank Morgan, Drink What YOU You Like “ Re-tasting the wines from the #winesofchile tasting to get better notes. Really digging the Terra Andina Altos the more I explore it.” Tim Lemke, Cheap Wine Ratings “ Thoroughly enjoyed the #WinesOfChile Carmenere tasting tonight. Great stuff.

Many cut out one of the chat elements in order to focus on the wine and the winemakers’ commentary. </li></ul><ul><li>Bloggers want to be treated like traditional journalists and would prefer the more serious wine questions be relayed to the moderator in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>Very cost efficient: US$30,000 each. </li></ul>

  80. 91.

It turned out that the wine had an absolutely fantastic freshness, great body, and was in superb condition.&quot; </li></ul>

  86. 97. Is the job done? <ul><li>Screwcaps are fully integrated in the New Zealand wine scene and there is little or no discussion about it from any members of the initiative as they have moved well beyond requiring any collective  support. It is well and truly in the commercial arena now for both NZ and Australian wines. John Belsham, Foxes Island Wines NZ, former chair of New Zealand Screwcap initiative </li></ul><ul><li>Ever-increasing library of evidence to dispel any misconceptions re the inability of wines to age well under screwcaps. </li></ul>
  87. 98. In Summary.... <ul><li>Screwcaps use in the wine industry has been a dramatic and very positive development over the past decade and the customer is getting a better quality wine – they are very unforgiving of clumsy wine making </li></ul><ul><li>Will be great to observe wine consumers’ screw capped bottle aging expectations rise. As the wines—commercial and great, red and white—live longer and develop better in bottle </li></ul><ul><li>For the millennial’s who are the wine drinkers of the future cork taint should be a thing of the past </li></ul><ul><li>Cork producers will continue down their own path of innovation </li></ul><ul><li>The growth in the use of screwcaps has been rapid and will continue. According to the world's best known wine critic, Robert Parker, wines bottled with corks will be in the minority by 2015 </li></ul>
  88. 99. “ Corks will come out I believe wines bottled with corks will be in the minority by 2015. The cork industry has not invested in techniques that will prevent &quot;corked&quot; wines afflicted with the musty, moldy, wet-basement smell that ruins up to 15 percent of all wine bottles. The consequences of this laissez-faire attitude will be dramatic. More and more state-of-the-art wineries are moving to screw caps for wines that need to be consumed within 3 to 4 years of the vintage (about 95 percent of the world's wines). The one exception will be great wines meant to age for 20 to 30 years that will still be primarily cork finished-although even the makers of these wines may experience consumer backlash if the cork industry does not solve the problem of defective corks. Synthetic corks, by the way, are not the solution. “ Robert M. Parker, Jr., editor and publisher of The Wine Advocate
