Winemaker Notes

This celebrated bio-dynamic wine is of-ten referred to as Chile's first "garage wine." The 2010 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. The 100% Maipo Valley estate fruit is hand harvested and is a blend of 47% Carmenere, 24% Syrah, and 29% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged one year in French oak barrels, then bottled and aged for an additional six months in the cellar prior to release.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Antiyal is a blend of 47% Carmenere, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Syrah. It has a very well defined bouquet with blackberry leaf, crushed stone, and limestone. This is very expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with super-fine tannins. It is very well balanced with grace and poise towards the natural, refined blackberry and sea salt tinged finish. This is another beautiful wine from Alvaro.

V 92
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

(made from 43% carmenere, 39% cabernet sauvignon and 18% syrah; 80% new French oak): Vivid ruby-red. Intensely perfumed bouquet of red- and blackcurrant, cherry compote and fresh rose. Suave and seamless in texture, offering energetic red and dark berry flavors that stain the palate. Picks up notes of smoky minerals and anise on the back end and leaves sweet and spicy notes behind on the long, sappy, very precise finish. This is really elegant, and among the elite red wines of the vintage.

Wine Enthusiast

Roasted, spicy and gritty aromas are common for this Carmenère-led blend from Alvaro Espinoza. The palate is full and ripe, with tannic grip. Flavors of buttery oak, vanilla, blackberry and olive lead to a toasty finish, with mocha and bitter chocolate notes. Overall, it's an oaky, ripe, strong-boned Maipo wine to drink now–2017.
