Carmenere ‘Victoria’

label image label image

Tasting Notes

Carmenere is known as the “lost grape of Bordeaux.” It is deep red in color with hints of blackberry, raspberry, plum, tobacco, coffee, and cocoa on the nose that follow through to the palate. A well rounded wine that pairs well with pasta, meat sauces, roasted meats, and aged cheeses.
