Wine of the Day: Primus Carmenere

20191105_1532216044787090678841567.jpgThough it’s roots lie in Bordeaux, when we think of Carmenere our mind is immediately taken to Chile. Classically known as a blending variety, adding concentration and texture to softer Bordeaux varieties, Chile showcases the spicy, earthy, dense grape on its own in single variety representations. And, when done well, it is beautiful.

Primus Carmenere ($35) from the well-draining, clay and loam filled soils in Chile’s Apalta area of the Colchagua Valley reveals savory wild herb, balsamic, and dark cherry notes, melding seamlessly with toasted oak and spice. #wineoftheday #cheers
