A Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 24% Carménère, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot from Puente Alto, Maipo, aged for 18 months in barrels and clay vats due to the hot year. The usual local black currant flavors are present, along with maraschino cherry. Complex, with clear influence from the oak, this is an alcoholic wine with a firm structure and taut feel. A serious-minded balance between freshness and flavor allows it to breathe pleasantly. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, March 2020)

I’m going to assume this is whole cluster. You definitely taste the vine although not greeness.

The Almaviva journey continues. 2015 this time with a huge 100 point James Suckling score to live up to. Planned to drink over two days to see what happened. Upon opening, it’s completely closed, almost hard to discern any real aromas but after two hours it starts to come to life. Blackcurrant, mushroom and vanilla with some darker flavors of chocolate and a slight green pepper. Very dry but great depth which just needs time. Day two there is a nice added sweetness and it’s much smoother with less drying tannins. I can’t score it 10 or 100 because I’m not clever enough to know where it goes but for now this is another great Almaviva which I have no doubt will achieve its full potential when I have more grey hair.
