"Gorgeous aromas of warm chocolate ganache and mocha lead the way for a rich, velvety palate loaded with currant, fig paste, black licorice, cassis bush and bramble notes. The long, juicy finish has great grip and density, with echoes of graphite, dark fruit and minerality. This should really reward cellaring. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot (the first vintage to include Petit Verdot). Best from 2009 through 2019."
"The 2005 Almaviva is dark ruby-colored with a classy nose of smoke, violets, mineral, pencil lead, espresso, black currants, and blackberry. This is followed by a supple-textured wine with layers of sweet fruit, excellent depth and concentration, and well integrated oak, tannin, and acidity. There is enough structure to support 5-7 years of further evolution in the bottle and it should continue to drink well through 2037.
Almaviva is a partnership of Bordeaux first-growth Chateau Mouton-Rothschild and Concha y Toro. Made in the style of top of the line Pauillac, the blend is typically 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22-23% Carmenere (a very close relative of Merlot), and 4-5% Cabernet Franc. It spends 18 months in new French oak and is bottled unfined and unfiltered."
Intense aromas of blueberries, blackberries, sweet tobacco and a dark chocolate character. Full body with finer tannins than earlier vintages, yet they are still a little austere and very present. Delicious shaved dark chocolate and dark fruit. 74% cabernet sauvignon, 21% carmenere, 5% cabernet franc.
