New Wines by the Glass: Casa Silva, Carmenere

Aug 8, 2023

A recent addition to our offerings of Wines by the Glass — Casa Silva’s Carmenere — takes its place on the menu after being featured as one of our Wines of the Moment. Carmenere is a varietal that’s French in origin, specifically from the Bordeaux region of France. Though not widely used in France any longer, it has really taken hold in the Colchagua region of Chile. Carmenere can be a finicky grape that’s late harvesting, and if everything doesn’t go right in the vineyard it can lead to some overpowering green bell pepper notes. But if done right, Carmenere can have delicious blackberry, plum and spice notes.

Casa Silva, Carmenere

Casa Silva is one of the longest enduring wineries in Chile, dating back to the 1800’s. This single-vineyard expression from the Los Lingues Vineyard is farmed sustainably from vines of an average age of twenty years at an elevation of 1475 feet. This wine will pair delightfully with steak and chimichurri sauce, fajitas, red curry and other Indian/Mediterranean foods.
