91 Points, Tim Atkin: Fermented in open lagars, with only a short maceration, David Marcel’s unoaked Maule Valley Carignan has appealing red plum and cherry fruit, a nip of tannin and crunchy acidity. A less austere expression of the grape. 2018-22. Alcohol: 13.2%

This 100% unoaked Carignan is from the Maule region in Chile. Notes of blackberry and cassis dusted by cinammon and cedar show on the nose. The palate shows hints of mushroom and earth tones underneath the dark fruit. A touch of black pepper spice and a solid dose of structural tannins round out the wine.
