Carmenere: The Other Red Meat Wine

With grills firing left and right it’s time to take a look at Carmenere, a great wine for grilled red meat!

2009 Aromo Carmenere Maule Valley 13.5%

A bit dank and carob-like on the nose with soft vegetal aromas that recall dusty old books, along with wet forest floor and a hint of mint. Smooth on entry yet fairly bright, this shows off a nice blend of herbal red currant fruit and earthy, nutty oak notes in the mouth. There's a bit of vanilla that creeps in on the back end that, giving a bit of a simple fruit, sweet oak/vanilla feel to it, but the oak and tobacco notes on the dry finish sweep much of that away. A tale of two wines. 84pts
