    2022 Tripantu Carménère Reserve Maule Valley is a dry, medium-bodied wine that fans of supple Merlot will want to get a taste of. This wine has an award-winning pedigree, as the previous vintage garnered an impressive 92-point Gold Medal. Cherry red with hints of violet in the glass, this red wine offers delectable aromas of black plum and black pepper with a touch of tobacco. Plum and blackberry flavor notes are accented with earthy, herbal hints on the palate, which is well-balanced with smooth, velvety tannins. Grapes were aged in American and French oak barrels for six months, lending complexity and structure. “Tripantu” or “when it all began” is what the Mapuche people of Chile say to recount their stories. This Tripantu takes us to the vineyards of Chile, specifically Maule Valley, which is one of the country’s largest winegrowing regions. Maule Valley has a climate in which intense sunlight, cool nights, and maritime influences allow grapes to ripen slowly. Originally from Bordeaux, Carménère thrives in Chile and has become a treasured grape in this New World region. Tripantu is produced by a third-generation family of winemakers with farming in their blood and a passion for viticulture. Terraustral Wines consistently crafts high-quality wines that “reflect all magic corners of our Chilean land.” Enjoy their Tripantu Carménère with red meats, pasta, and soft cheeses. The varietal has a natural acidity that will pair well with slightly acidic sauces, such as tomato, and its peppery elements will complement pepper-seasoned dishes. This wine’s recommended serving temperature is 60–64° F.
