Carménère Chile 2007

Tonight’s wine is a lovely Carmenere.

I am learning all about wine. I have loved wine for a while but won’t lie, I know little to nothing about why I like it. I have pinpointed that I like Malbec, Cabrenet Savignon if within the right dates, Argentinian table wines and most deep reds from France. Now I start exploring them by labels, vineyards, year and region.

Wish me luck!

Thanks to Dallas Secret Wine I have learned that the Carmenere is a cross between  Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Here’s Wikipedia’s  insert about Carmenere.

Carménère wine has a deep red color and aromas found in red fruits, spices and berries.[1] The tannins are gentler and softer than those in Cabernet Sauvignon and it is a medium body wine.[9] Although mostly used as a blending grape, wineries do bottle a pure varietal Carménère which, when produced from grapes at optimal ripeness, imparts a cherry-like, fruity flavor with smoky, spicy and earthy notes and a deep crimson color. Its taste might also be reminiscent of dark chocolate, tobacco, and leather. The wine is best drunk young.
