More about this wine from Colchagua Valley, Chile

New World vs. Old World is a constant clash in the wine world. Of course, the Old World AKA Europe has tradition and centuries of winemaking history, but sometimes that heritage prohibits the creative spirit! We go more in depth on the differences HERE. Chile is like the new cool kid on the block, and it is safe to say that the Ventisquero crew in Chile is making some excellent vino and also challenging the old rules of winemaking.


While the Cabs in Chile are yummy, don't do the disservice to your taste buds by missing out on Carménère. Check out the Grape Guide: Carménère to get into the weeds. Carménère is one of the Bordeaux family of grapes; Cabernet Franc is one of its parents, making it a half-sibling of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Your olfactories will be hit with smells of jammy black and red fruit intertwined with hints of chocolate, leather, and vanilla. The ripe red fruit, leather, and vanilla notes come through in a lingering finish you'll never want to end.

How to drink it
