Carménère wine has a deep red color and aromas found in red fruits, spices and berries. Thet annins are gentler and softer than those in Cabernet Sauvignon and it is a medium body wine.[24] Although mostly used as a blending grape, wineries do bottle a pure varietal Carménère which, when produced from grapes at optimal ripeness, imparts a cherry-like, fruity flavor with smoky, spicy and earthy notes and a deep crimson color. Its taste might also be reminiscent of dark chocolate, tobacco, and leather. The wine is best to drink while it is young.

Here is a not from our Chilean Supplier

We harvest the grapes from prime areas of Chile such as Colchagua, Maipo, and Aconcagua.   Wine magazines will detail the higher quality wines that are from these areas.   The grapes usually sold in the US are from Familia Sagrada in CURICO.  An example of the wines from here are Miguel Torres, good value wines, but not the quality of ours. We harvest at optimum flavor development which includes better sugars and fruit development.  Our grapes are picked at the time our winery partners pick for their own wines.  We dont pick our grapes at the same time, for example, the Merlot will typically be ready up to 4 weeks in advance of the Cabernet Sauv, and  we give the Carmenere even longer hang time.
