Almaviva 2015 

Cabernet Sauvignon: 73% Carménère: 22% Cabernet Franc: 4% Merlot: 1% with 18 Months in new French oak.

Deep, intense, ruby red colour with purple tones. The nose is pure, well focused and elegant. Complex and layered, it reveals fresh and delicate aromas of cassis, black berries and violet, associated to fine notes of vanilla, cacao, liquorice, and spices. The wine is filling the mouth with smooth, well refined and juicy tannins, underlining the plenitude of the ripe fruit. The texture is incredibly round and silky, and the finish is long and fleshy. A superb wine, precise in its character, accessible and remarkably balanced.

"A glorious and complex nose of tobacco, blackberries and hints of stones and flowers. Hints of bitter chocolate. Full-bodied, very tight and compacted. Linear backbone gives this form and tension. It has the same character on the palate as well as cayenne and other spice. Loved the 2014 but this shows more fine-grained tannins. So balanced and harmonious. A blend of 69% cabernet sauvignon, 24% carmenere, 5% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Needs four or five years in bottle but a joy to taste now."
