    Winemaker's Notes:

    A Bordeaux blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon 26% Carmenère, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot.

    A superb wine of exceptional finesse and remarkable expression, Almaviva is dark ruby red, intense and opaque. The nose is deep and complex, remarkably rich and concentrated, revealing fresh ripe fruit aromas, plum, cassis and blackberries associated to mineral hints, vanilla and coffee. The attack is powerful, ample and silky, immediately revealing a well-balanced and harmonious structure. The tannins are ripe and round, nicely enveloped by flavorful hints of vanilla, grilled orange zest, chocolate and tobacco. The finish is long, mineral and silky, enhancing the richness of the ripe fruit and the elegance of the tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Muscular and broad-shouldered, with lots of bittersweet cocoa, dark currant and braised fig notes, followed by a long, loam- and coffee-filled finish. There's also plenty of iron-tinged grip for the cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2010 through 2015. 12,500 cases made.

    Deep red with a bright rim. Rich cassis and blackberry aromas are complicated by roasted coffee, anise and pipe tobacco nuances. Broad and fleshy, with sweet red and dark berry liqueur flavors, supple texture and slow-building tannins. Becomes more energetic with air, offering tangy redcurrant and raspberry flavors that carry through the sappy finish. Impressively pure wine that deftly blends depth and power with energy.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 2006 Almaviva continues a series of successful vintages for this Chilean icon. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits an expressive bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, blackcurrant, and blackberry. Elegantly styled and impeccably balanced, it will evolve for several more years and drink well through 2021 at the least.
