Wine made from Carmenere can be deep red with aromas of red fruits, spices and berries. The tannins in this grape are softer and gentler than Cabernet Sauvignon. Carmenere blends well Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc. Carmenere has been described as cherry-like, spicey, earthy, and smokey.
Carmenere was originally planted in the Medoc region of Bordeaux, France. Cuttings were taken to Chile in the 19th century where it was widely planted and confused with Merlot. In 1994 it was confirmed that it was the earlier-ripening vine, Bordeaux Carmenere and not Merlot. Carmenere is rarely seen in France and has become Chile’s signature grape known as “the lost grape of Bordeaux”.
