Carmenère Gran Riserva

Carmenère Gran Riserva Wine Details
Price: $29.00 per bottle

Description: Intense plum, cassis, cedar, dark chocolate

Varietal Definition
The now resurgent Carmenère grape was brought to Chile in the 1850s before it was virtually wiped out in Europe by the phylloxera epidemic in the 1880s. It has since thrived in Chile, and was mistaken for Merlot until its spicy and distinctive flavor was rediscovered and developed separately from Merlot in recent years.
