Wines-SouthAmericaSouth American wine producers are making serious wines — and with something for everyone. Three that we liked at a recent tasting, from Argentina: Finca Sophenia Roberto L Malbec, C. Sauvignon, Merlot, C. Franc, P. Verdot 2012; Cheval des Andes Malbec, C. Sauvignon, P. Verdot 2011; and from Uruguay: Estancia La Cruz Jano Tannat 2013.

The tannat from Estancia La Cruz is especially good with quinoa salad and a cheese burger, followed by chocolate.
