Label Love: Sierra Batuco Carmenere

I just started a job as a server at a country club, and the wine list is impressive. Of course, I had to explore the wine list for myself…and I came across Sierra Batuco Reserva Carménère.

This is a red wine from Chile; a full-bodied oak-aged wine with structure and exciting complexity. With aromas of white pepper and dry leaves, the taste opens up to a rich blackberry/raspberry flavor. The Carménère has a very smooth and satisfying finish, with just a hint of vanilla on the end. If you want a complex “fill your mouth” kind of wine, I highly recommend you give this one a try. I’ve enjoyed it with beef, or it would also be wonderful with lamb. Bottles are available at most wine or liquor stores. A 750ml bottle will cost between $13-$15, which is a fantastic price.

Until next time, Happy Sipping!
