November 15, 2016 - Carménère, a Mistaken Identity
Instructor: Rhett Humphreys, Jones of Washington
Originally, this grape was thought to be Merlot when it was first transplanted into Chile. This case of mistaken identity is perhaps what saved this mystifying grape from extinction when Phylloxera devastated the vineyards of Bordeaux in the late 1800’s. Any guesses on what this grape might be?! If you guessed Carménère then you would be correct! Come and learn and taste this mysterious red grape and what makes it special with its growing popularity with growers and producers here in Washington state. Join Jones of Washington’s wine enthusiast Rhett Humphrey as he takes you on a fun adventure and discusses everything wonderful about this original Bordeaux varietal.
