One of my favorite Bordeaux style blends actually comes from South America and so I was open to trying this one, though it only has four varietals and instead of Merlot, it has Carmenere.
This wine is comprised of 61% Carmenere -- the lost varietal of Bordeaux -- 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Caberent Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Petit Verdot, bitches!
This wine has strong leather character, followed by just a twinge of dark fruit. It also goes perfectly with dark chocolate.
A great bargain for the price, this wine can give you the rep that you know your sh$t when it comes to wine. I would serve ths with steak, goose, game meats or even sausage.
