Carmenere is to Chile what Malbec is to Argentina. The story goes that Carmenere was brought to Chile ages ago from France. Carmenere thrived in the high altitude Chilean vineyards but the locals lost track for its pedigree and the grape was eventually presumed to be Merlot–partly because of the soft fruit flavors often associated with Merlot. Eventually science sorted it all out and Chile Carmenere took its rightful place as Chile’s stellar red. Easy drinking and very affordable, Chilean Carmenere deserves a spot in any red wine lovers cellar.
