wine friday: panilonco carmenere.
Let’s take a trip down South together, shall we?
I’m talking really South like…Chile.
Did you know Chile is the fifth largest exporter of wines in the world, thanks in part to the French who brought Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines as well as the Carmenere grape from Bordeaux, France. Carmenere wines are best opened and consumed while they are young (hence this 2010 recommendation). Oh and wait until you see how much I paid for it…
For your consideration: Panilonco Carmenere 2010
$3.99 at Trader Joes.
