A Chilean Carménère Good with a Tasty Beef and Pork Chilli

We found a recipe online called Pat’s Famous Beef and Pork Chilli from Foodnetwork.com.  We reduced the huge quantities of chilli powder and omitted the black beans because we didn’t have any.  We also substituted Foster’s Gold for the Budweiser in the recipe.  What a superb variation on Chilli Con Carne!  We accompanied it with a bottle of Porta Reserva Carménère 2009 a Chilean red from Costco.  The wine had red and black fruits, plums, cassis, spiciness and smooth tannins.  It was a good match with the Chilli.
