Carmenere was thought to be almost lost after it lost favor in Bordeaux, however, it was discovered that much of Chile’s plantings of “Merlot” were in fact Carmenere. Carmenere is grown almost exclusively in Chile where it makes a wine similar to Cabernet Sauvignon with a bit more vegetal and with a touch of smoke. Chile wasn’t really recognized as a quality producer of table wine until the last 20 years. They produce lots of wine to swill and swirl with the local cuisine, but only minimal amounts make it to us here. Chile is one of the best producers of high quality wines with a pricetag that is far less. Grab a bottle for your next bbq…in 2021.
