DetailsOriginally grown in France, Carménère was presumed to be extinct after a destructive Phylloxera plague in 1867 until it was recently discovered to be thriving in Chile. This varietal is deep crimson, with dark cherry aroma, red fruits and berry notes running to a smoky, spicy finish with notes of dark chocolate and tobacco. With medium body and moderate yet gentle tannins, Carménère drinks well young and improves with age.
