kahr-mehn-YEHR | Carmenere has a deep, rich color and is characterized by aromas of red fruits, spices, and berries. The tannins in Carmenere are gentler and softer than those in Cabernet Sauvignon, making it a medium-bodied wine that is perfect for pairing with fish or enjoying on its own. Although Carmenere is often used as a blending grape, wineries now bottle it as a pure varietal. Carmenere offers a fruity flavor with smoky, spicy, and earthy notes, as well as a deep crimson color. You may even detect hints of dark chocolate, tobacco, and leather in its taste. Whether you're a seasoned wine connoisseur or just looking to try something new, Carmenere is a wine that you won't want to miss.
