Wednesday Whine

CosechaTarapacaCarmenereHidden in the depths of my wine shelf I found this wine.

Yes, another Chilean wine; we get a lot of them here in Brazil.

Cosecha Tarapaca Carmenére

2012

This is another unproven wine just waiting for that rainy day.

Food pairings from the bottle, roast red meat, pasta and smooth cheeses.

Being a Carmenére, probably great with BBQ too.

Chile produces the vast majority of Carménère wines available today although the grape is originally from the Bordeaux region of France and beyond to ancient Rome.

  3. >WineGeek, unfortunately all my friends find it too dry. Brazilians are whooses, they generally only like sweet plonk.
