Raise your hand if you are up for a pure Carménère that marries Chilean patented swagger and a briefcase full extra flavours that you usually find in blends from areas like France’s Loire Valley. The Viu Manent Carménère Reserva 2009 packs all the green pepper, earthy tones and signature tannin that you should get from a good Carménère and throws in some cassis blackberry and even some refreshing mint. This is an example of how a Carménère can have some of those things we all love in a Cabernet Sauvingon, without being so dry and retain some juiciness. Keep this wine in mind when matching with Chocolate!
BottleDJ Music Match: Hot Chocolate’s You Sexy Thing. This wine really has everything, except over the top dryness, and this classic keeps marries the disco beat with a loose style of rhythm and blues.
