With a concentration that can be attributed to the gnarly vines, averaging over 70 years in age, from which this Carignan is harvested, the wine exemplifies the majesty of Chile’s old vineyards. Spicy and crunchy in its woodsy, autumnal flavors and its rustic tannins, the Carignan shows a second side in its youthful and pure berry notes—cranberry, raspberry, and red currant. That surprising juxtaposition evokes the wine’s complexity and mouthwatering appeal.
