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. (JR)
Starting to open, with cedar, roasted vanilla and mesquite aromas giving way to a rich, loam- and black currant-filled palate. The long, fleshy finish lets the loamy edge play out nicely. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. (JM, Web—2011)
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. (JM)
