    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine is stainless-steel fermented for approximately 22 days, then transferred to 98% new French Allier and 2% American Oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation. It is then aged for 14 months. The wine is lightly fined, and then bottled unfiltered.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Allende has an opulent, licorice and cured meat-tinged nose that is complex and vibrant. The palate is well-balanced with an attractive edginess on the entry. The tannins are ripe and bold, with the finish packed full of blackberry, raspberry, soy and dried herbs that show fine persistency. Drink 2014-2020+.

    The Wine Advocate

    Ruby-red. Sexy cherry and roasted meat aromas are complicated by dried orange peel and licorice. Bitter cherry and anise flavors develop a smoky quality with air and are framed by silky tannins. Gains sweetness on the long, spicy finish, which echoes the exotic orange quality. This is extremely suave.
