Prestige - Chilean Carmenere: Chile's 'secret weapon' grape, Carménère is like Merlot that started off as an Offensive Lineman and took up ballet: the luscious black cherry and dark berries (like Merlot) and hints of dark chocolate give way to robust-yet-refined tannins and a finish of spice, leather, toast and vanilla.
The bold fruit and gripping tannin will stand up to a wide array of foods. Try with tacos (especially al pastor for the adventurous), barbecued meatballs, cheeseburgers and rich salty cheeses like Havarti or Pepperjack.
This kit comes with GenuWine grape skins for added extract and tannin, and is enhanced with American oak, and Bourgovin RC 212 yeast.
