Carménère produces big, deep red wines and was once thought to be a nearly extinct Bordeaux variety. But it was discovered that nearly 50% of the "Merlot" planted in Chile was actually Carménère. A member of the Cabernet family of grapes, the name originates from the French word for crimson (carmin) which refers to the brilliant crimson color of the autumn foliage prior to leaf-fall. Zinfandel is a variety of black-skinned wine grapes that is widely misunderstood. The grapes typically produce a robust red wine with red berry fruits, anise and pepper and smoke. In this tasting experience, we are going to compare the two noble varieties!
The Curious Palate is a tasting experience that is designed for the taster who wants to take their personal wine experience to a new level by building knowledge...while having fun! What is the difference between drinking and tasting...and does it matter? How does what’s in your glass pair with food? How can you elevate any event with a little more flavor? While Michaela take her studies and classes seriously, she strives to make each tasting delightful and dynamic!
