Osprey's Dominion Vineyards

Carmenère

Red Wine

No longer significantly planted in the Bordeaux Regions of France, Carmenere was largely forgotten until its recent rediscovery in Chile where it was erroneously called Merlot for many years. Osprey's Dominion is proud to be Long Island's first producer of this unique varietal. We hope you enjoy our version of Carmenere with its aroma's of spice, cedar chest and anise and rich jammy fruit flavors.

It's rare to see varietal Carmenère outside of Chile, let alone in Long Island, and such a great surprise when it's as tasty as this. It's lusciously fruity yet pristinely fresh, boasting crisp black-plum and cherry flavors that penetrate deeply on the palate. A herbaceous swathe of green leaf and bramble only accentuates the freshness. Fine firm tannins need a few years to meld. Hold until 2020.
