I also tasted this 2014 Vigno next to the 2015 version and the T.H. Carignan from 2015. This is a slightly different blend than the 2015—88% Cariñena and 12% Cinsault. But the vinification and aging was similar, and the origin of the grapes is the same, from vines planted in 1950 in Maule. It fermented separately in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in a 5,000-liter oak vat for 16 months. 2014 was warmer and riper than 2013, a ripe, concentrated but elegant style of year. There are not that many differences between 2014 and 2015 in Maule; both vintages were warm, but 2014 was drier and resulted in lower yields. So, the wines are a little more concentrated and more powerful, as well as a little warmer and riper, as it should be according to the vintage.
