Carmenere is a wonderful deep purple smooth yet rich grape with an amazing past. Carmenere was one of the original six grapes grown in the Bordeaux region but it disappeared from French vineyards in the mid 1800s. This variety is now considered the flagship red wine of Chile. It was not until recently that the Carmenere has been identified as its own varietal dating back to pre Phylloxera France. For centuries in Chile the Carmenere has been mistaken for Merlot. This wine is big soft and spicy all at once. The flavors are enhanced by the ever-present oak.
