    Winemaker's Notes:

    Antiyal 2008 shows a deep dark color with intense aromas of berries, dark fruit, earth and mineral notes giving clean expression and character. The character of the wood is well-integrated with the wine. In the palate the wine has good concentration, volume and body, with well-balanced and soft tannins in the finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    ($60; 43% carmenere, 39% cabernet sauvignon and 18% syrah) Glass-staining ruby. High-pitched, assertive aromas of raspberry and blackberry, complicated by floral and incense nuances and a hint of smoky herbs. Juicy, palate-staining red and dark berry preserve flavors show impressive purity and pick up sweetness with aeration. Lively and precise on the finish, which echoes the floral and smoke notes strongly. Incidentally, the 2007, which I had the chance to taste twice this winter, both in Chile and here in New York, is showing a wild array of spice-accented dark berry qualities and an exotic note of apricot. It's quite open-knit now but has the depth to age for quite a bit longer.

    Every year this wine impresses and scores the same, so give credit to Antiyal for consistent high quality. This vintage shows milk chocolate, leather and char on the nose along with deep berry aromas. The palate is full and lush, with cassis, cherry, berry and a light leafiness. Mildly herbal but that's pure Maipo Valley for you; Carmenère, Cabernet and Syrah is the blend. Drink now–2013.

    A solid, grippy style, with lilac, cedar and Kenya AA coffee notes up front, followed by firm, focused flavors of black currant, tar and licorice root. There's a nice tug of loam on the finish. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2011. 505 cases made.
