Found Object Carmenere, Not Objectionable

Trader Joes last month was selling Found Object Carmenere for less than $6 a bottle.  A young (2010) red from Chile's Colchagua Valley, it was pretty good.  Two years ago (was it really 2 years? wow...) I mentioned the Panilonco Merlot Malbec from the Colchagua Valley.  Like it's merlot cousin, this carmenere did not disappoint.  Carmenere is an under-appreciated varietal that I try to seek out as often as possible.  it goes good with spicy meat (asadas, salsas, pepper dishes) and flavorful dishes. 

If you like Chilean reds, try a Colchagua Carmenere and you just might like it.  Other wine bloggers have also found it to be "drinkable (here, here, here, and here).
