Tingui Cellars Carménère Valle Central, Chile

Winemakers are attracted to the Carménère grape because of its pure fruit flavors and just a hint of pepper. Even though this varietal originated in France, it has been almost forgotten in that country. In fact, probably 70 or so acres of vineyard survive, mainly in the Bordeaux region. In Chile, there are over 28,000 acres planted with this attractive, enjoyable wine.

According to Chilean law, this wine can contain up to 15% of other varieties. Usually, winemakers will blend in Syrah or a grape with a similar body to make the wine a bit lusher.

In our selection from Tingui Cellars, see if you can pick up flavors of pomegranate and red fruit flavors like raspberry. This grape also contains a certain compound that imparts notes of eucalyptus and green peppercorn. Taste carefully, and you might even sense a hint of cocoa powder.

Like most wines, this is an excellent accompaniment with food, especially because of its pronounced acidity. Try it with lean meats and a tasty sauce, like parsley pesto or mint jelly.  Since it goes well with turkey, put a bottle on the table for Thanksgiving.
