    Winemaker's Notes:

    #4 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2005

    The Puente Alto Vineyard in the Maipo Valley has the perfect combination of climate and soils for producing world-class wine: the climate is ideal and predictable, and the soil is poor and gravelly to reduce yields and increase concentration naturally. After fermentation, the wine is matured in the finest French oak barriques for a year, followed by another year in the bottle before release. The result is a rich, full-bodied wine with an unmistakable minty character in the bouquet and the finish. Drink with the finest roasts, and strong cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Gorgeous nose of black currant preserves and freshly roasted coffee, with a powerful yet very silky palate of cassis, plum, blackberry, loam, mineral and dark chocolate flavors that glide through a superlong finish. Don't be deceived by its seeming accessibility though--there's some iron-clad structure underneath for the long haul as well.

    The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon remains youthful. It has a spicy, pain grille accented nose with plenty of mineral, cassis, and black currant making their presence known. The wine is medium to full-bodied in an elegant St.-Julien style. This layered, lengthy effort will continue to develop for another 6-8 years and drink well through 2027.

    I drank it out of 3 different red wine glasses. The Riddel was the best.
