With medium body and moderate tannins, Carménère drinks well young and improves with age. Originally a French grape, Carménère is now at the forefront of the Chilean wine scene.
This wine features notes of raspberry, plum, and vanilla.
Chile has a long wine history, beginning in the 16th century when Spanish conquistadors brought grape vines with them as they colonized the region. Chile's reputation as a producer of high-quality wines has grown dramatically in recent years, and it is now the fifth largest exporter in the world.
Carménère is an excellent everyday wine because it pairs well with a wide variety of foods. It's an easy-going wine that's great to have on hand for a variety of occasions. Pair it with lamb, bacon, empanadas, roasted vegetables, or tuna. It's also wonderful with goat cheese, chicken, beef stew, and chocolate.
