Odfjell Armador Carménère – Chile

I love Carménère, a little-known varietal found primarily in Chile these days. These wines are not overly heavy and have a characteristic spice that I adore. Odfjell Armador has all this and more. Odfjell is a soft and gentle red with velvety tannins and a nose that’s alive with green pepper, some bright fruit tones, and a spice that only blossoms as the wine breathes.

Lately, I’ve been recommending it for hearty dishes; I enjoyed it with a flank steak and sauteed broccolini on one occasion and a cheeseburger with fries on another; the wine paired beautifully both times. Armador’s peppery, savory quality also allows it to go wonderfully with grilled vegetables and vegetarian dishes. With this wine’s versatility you can let your creativity flow. Let us know what you try!
