    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2006 vintage has an intense and complex aroma of dark fruit and mineral notes. The palate is rich and concentrated with volume, balance and a lingering, soft finish. This 100% Maipo Valley estate fruit is hand harvested and is a blend of 44% Carmenère, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Syrah.

    The Antiyal blend is aged one year in French oak barrels, then bottled and aged for an additional six months in the cellar prior to release. Antiyal's grapes are organically grown, which Espinoza believes gives his fruit a superior expression of terroir.

    Regarded as among the very best wines produced in South America today, Antiyal comes from renowned Chilean winemaker Álvaro Espinoza. This celebrated wine is often referred to as Chile's first "garage wine."

    Antiyal produces fewer than 400 cases of wine a year in the sleepy Maipo Valley town of Alta Jahuel. Antiyal — a Mapuche Indian word that means "sons of the sun" — is a homegrown project of Espinoza and his wife Marina. It's so homegrown that the one-acre vineyard in the Huelquen area of the Maipo Valley around Espinoza's house supplies grapes for the wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lively, finely etched raspberry, red currant and cherry flavors possess impressive depth. Delicious right now, but balanced to reward at least another five years of patience.

    Concentrated with some elegance, with a nearly sleek, minerally feel backed by a lingering loamy hint on the finish.
