Carménère is a red grape that was born in the French wine region of Bordeaux, but it never truly found its place there - instead, it has found fame and fortune in Chile, South America, where it is now considered the country’s national grape. Carménère produces wonderful red wines that pairs deliciously with meat dishes and BBQ, but it still isn’t well known by wine drinkers around the world. The Longaví 2015 Carménère is deep carmine in color with aromas of ripe red and black fruits (cherries and blackberries) with just a touch of black pepper. In the mouth, the wine is round with good structure, and soft and juicy tannins. Pair with red or white meats, spiced vegetables with curry and pepper, or Indian and Mexican food.
