Carmenère

Carmenère is a red wine produced from the eponymous variety in Chile. It was originally thought to be Merlot that was brought over from Bordeaux in the 19th century, but in the mid-1990s, research proved it was not Merlot, but indeed Carmenère, which had been thought of as extinct.

Top examples originate from the warm Maipo and Colchagua valleys in Chile; the wines are medium- to medium-full in body and offer red cherry fruit along with distinct pepper, tobacco and brown spice aromas and flavors. While early versions were rather bitter, recent examples have displayed great balance and refinement.

Enjoy Carmenère between three to seven years after the vintage date in most cases. The wines pair well with most red meats and are especially enjoyable with heartier fare, such as grilled meats and game.
