Niner 2017 BR Reserve Estate Grown Carmenère (Paso Robles)

Editors' Choice

Carmenère is an uncommon grape for almost anywhere other than Chile these days, but this version reveals its intriguing ways. The nose combines pressed blackberry aromas with dried meat, tar and a hint of green herbs. The palate's dark berry core is decorated with loamy earth flavors and a light green-pepper note—a common hallmark of the grape. That latter element intensifies with time. Matt Kettmann
