For those that don't know, Carmenere was mistaken for years in Chile as Merlot, so there were many Merlots from there that were mixed in there that also had Carmenere.

Carmenere is a wonderful red, and I would say that it should be right underneath Cabernet Sauvignon for its beauty and flavor. This one met with applause from myself and the people that I shared it with, and while it was pleasantly dry, also contained a nice sliver or mint as well as spice.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
