Miguel Torres, Central Valley (Chile) Cabernet Sauvignon “Las Mulas” Reserva 2019

($14, Miguel Torres USA):   Miguel Torres, one of Spain’s leading producers, expanded to Chile in 1979, becoming the first foreign investment in that country’s wine industry, according to their website.  Torres introduced the Las Mulas line — the wines are made entirely from organic grapes — in 2010.  Two years later, all of Torres vineyards were certified organic.  This Cabernet Sauvignon represents a good buy, with a hint of savory notes balancing the black fruit one.  Soft tannins make it ideal for current consumption.  It’s not an overdone wine, as reflected by its modest 13.5 percent stated alcohol.
