Anakena Chile Carmenere: Wine with a Wild Side

It’s been awhile since I’ve had the chance to try any new wines, I have been searching my normal haunts (Trader Joe’s, Costco, and the Wal-Mart) and have been striking out in finding anything interesting that fits into my Middle-Class wine parameters (under ten bucks a bottle). Then, while on his own perfect brew mission, the Hubs returned from the Total Wine with something different, a Chilean Carmenere, and viola a new bottle to taste and share my thoughts on was found.

The Anakena Carmenere, as I mentioned, was purchased by the Hubs at the Total Wine for the close to the Middle-Class Mama cut-off price of $7.99.  Considering the general price range of the wines I drink are closer to $5 (or less), I considered this Anakena Carmenere on the fancier side of the wine rack. When I have a bottle of wine that I think is a little too highfalutin for a Wine Wednesday, I feel the need to hold onto it until a special occasion rolls around, or at least a weekend evening.

 

So this past Sunday evening, I looked at that bottle of Anakena Carmenere and thought, “tonight’s the night.” I pulled it out of it’s snug cubby of the wine rack, and twisted the aluminum cap off.  Grabbing a shatter proof wine glass (that we have managed to shatter two from the set), I poured the Carmenere, and the first thing I noticed is the very rich red color. Intense ruby coloring is a typical characteristic of this wine variety, "Carmenere" is a derivative of the French word carmin which translates to crimson, and so after a quick swirl of the vermilion wine in my glass, I was ready for tasting.  

 

The Anakena Carmenere has a bold spicy fruit aroma that is indicative of it’s robust flavor.  This Carmenere is no joke, it has a big well-rounded flavor, but...to read the rest of my Anakena Carmenere review, please visit me at my blog here: A Middle-Class Mama's Wine Review
