Another fine and dandy old-vine, dry-farmed Cauquenes Carignan from Odfjell—one of the pioneers of this revived Maule varietal wine. Dark and lush on the nose, this is jammed with notes of berry, mineral, vanilla and smoky, lemony oak. It tastes fleshy, like berry marmalade, and finishes with flavors of dark chocolate, burnt toast and fine herb. Drink now –2017.
