The original Bordeaux grape, popular long before Merlot or Cabernet, Carménère combines characteristics of both, with rich, fleshy notes of black cherry and dark fruits of Merlot and the cedar/black currant and the expressive tannins of Cabernet. Look for a deep scarlet wine with black cherry and berry running to chocolate, spice, smoky notes and hints of violets and roses.
The juicy fruit makes it tempting to drink young, but aging will bring out more structure and elegance. Serve with grilled flank or skirt steak, roast lamb, grilled Portobello mushrooms, or for an amazing flavor sensation, with 70% dark cacao chocolate!

The kit arrived as scheduled and in good condition. When I bottled this i was disappointed. however it is now 6 week old and very good. I recommend it and expect to make it again. One should give it a little time to reach its potential
Excellent quality wine
My best ever. Very dry
We just bottled and it tasted good at bottling. I have made it before and it tastes good with little aging.
It’s not done yet, but so far so good.
