Vina Matia Weon Carignan-easy drinking medium bodied,, put a chill on it


"David Marcel has been making “Pipeños”, or lighter-bodied, easy-drinking reds in the Maule Valley of Chile since 2012.  This is an introduction to Chilean Carignan from David Marcel at Viña Maitia. Vines are about 70 years old, and the grapes are fermented in lagar, and aged in concrete. The aroma of fresh soil hits you first and a just a touch of barnyard followed by rich black plum, raspberry, and red apple skins. The palate is plush and juicy with soft, pleasant tannins making it easy to enjoy with or without food. The finish is distinctly stony and savory on this easy drinking medium-bodied wine.
