Snider1 Debra Snider CUL 214 9 April 2016 Kristine Miller Module Seven OPTION 1: CARMENERE What an interesting grape this is. It started in France, in the region of Bordeaux. It is related to merlot, and was used as a blending grape. This grape didn’t do well in the climate of France. The worst part of this grapes history was when the phyllorexa plaque of 1857 swept the regions, it was thought that this grape was extinct. It just so happened that just prior to the plague, several cuttings had made their way to Chile. Carmenere is now known as the national grape of Chile. When the cutting were taken, it was thought that they were getting merlot grapes. The leaves are so similar, and the error was not discovered until 1994. Since the discovery, Chile has used the story to capitalize itself as being the savior of the grape.

Snider2 In the beginning, the carmenere was used as a blending grape with merlot, but the Chileans discovered the true flavor of the grape and began to create its own varietal wine. It is said that this wine creates the flavors of spices, cherries, and blackberries. It’s best served with red meat, due to the hint of bitterness at its savory end.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
