Carmenère

Carmenère

Carmenère is a varietal originally planted in the Médoc region of Bordeaux, France, where it was used to produce deep red wines, similar to Merlot. Phylloxera practically wiped it out in the 19th century, but it survived in Chile where it is widely planted today. Carmenère wine has a deep red color and aromas found in red fruits, spices and berries. The tannins are gentler and softer than those in Cabernet Sauvignon. It iimparts a cherry-like, fruity flavor with smoky, spicy and earthy notes somteimes reminiscent of dark chocolate, tobacco, and leather.
