2012 Marchigue Carmenere

A Fine Sunday Afternoon out here in the West.  I've got a bottle of South Amercian red open tonight - specifically a Marchigue Carmenere.  Caremenere is a French varietal that is not grown extensively in France, but has found a home in South America.

Dark ruby red, the wine has a nose of red fruits and spice.  On the tongue it is a bit spicy with some soft tannins and just a bit of residual sugar to round them out.  This should go well with the Tri-Tip on the grill tonight.
