    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep, intense, opaque ruby red. The nose reveals a generous and powerful bouquet of blackberries, ripe cassis, licorice and  violets, with mineral hints and fine notes of vanilla, coffee, black pepper, incense and dark chocolate.  The mouth shows an outstanding balance, full of density, life, roundness and savors. The ripe, silky, concentrated and enrobed tannins give to the wine an incomparable voluptuous texture, as the evolution leaves an impression of plenitude and harmony. An extraordinary complex and powerful wine, full-bodied, persistent and layered, perfectly balanced by a great acidity. An exceptional and superb vintage with great aging potential.  

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dense and dark, with black currant, braised fig and black licorice flavors laid over notes of loam and freshly brewed espresso. Muscular but well-integrated, delivering nice focus that carries through the lengthy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2019. 12,500 cases made.

    The 2007 Almaviva continues a series of successful vintages for this Chilean icon. Medium purple-colored, it exhibits an expressive bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, blackcurrant, and blackberry. Elegantly styled and impeccably balanced, it will evolve for several more years and drink well through 2027 at the least.

    Dark, toasty and minerally to start with, then throw in some olive, herb and cassis and it's pure Maipo Cabernet at its best. The palate is deep, layered and lush, with smooth, elegand yet lusty flow of cassis, berry, olive and herbal flavors. Fine on the finish, with mild barrel-influenced chocolate. Ready to drink but could be cellared for another 4-5 years.

    Inky ruby. Powerful, strongly perfumed aromas of cherry-cola, cassis, pipe tobacco and oak spices. Offers sweet red and dark berry preserve flavors and building smokiness. Lush and creamy in texture but with good mineral spine and velvety supporting tannins. Manages to be both rich and lively, finishing with excellent clarity and smoky, spicy persistence.
