The 2010 Altazor is a luxury cuvee produced as a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Carmenere, 8% Syrah and 4% Petit Verdot and is a smooth and elegant version of a top-of-the-range wine, with fresh acidity, medium-bodied with supple tannins and clean flavors and aromas, with the wood neatly folded into the wine. This might not be that exciting or justify the hefty price tag, but it-s very good. Drink now-2020.
"Paying homage to the expression of its terroir, Altazor is an exceptional wine, because of its freshness, aromatic layers, balanced concentration and complexity. This wine is ruby red in colour with violet hues. It is very concentrated with an expressive nose revealing fruity notes of fresh raspberries, strawberries and plums, together with mineral notes, hints of graphite and tobacco. In the background are some riper fruit notes, such as blackcurrants and subtle floral hints. The mouth shows great balance and vitality, with well-balanced body, vibrant freshness and the pronounced tannins typical of Cabernet Sauvignon present throughout. Well-structured and with good density in the mouth, this wine nevertheless retains its elegance on the palate. The contributions from the other varieties promote the balance and freshness of the blend. The Carménère contributes its unmistakable notes of spice and red fruit. And a small amount of Carignan contributes floral notes to the nose and, above all, its solid, vertical tannin structure, bringing character and great persistence to the wine." - Winery
