About

97

“A wine with wonderful blueberry, blackberry and hints of cedar and spice. Full body, dense and beautiful fruit. Chocolate, walnut and berry. It goes on for minutes. A fabulous wine. Better in 2020 but gorgeous now.”

"First Growth of Chile.

Tasted as part of a mini-vertical of this high-end Chilean red blend, the 2014 stood out as one of the best releases yet. Made in a cooler year, it's a fine polished blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Carmenere and lesser amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. With graphite and licorice notes, lovely texture and a focused, refined finish, it's a wine to buy and tuck away for a year or two."

Product Description:

"Made from a blend of classic Bordeaux varieties, in which Cabernet Sauvignon predominates, Almaviva is the result of a felicitous encounter between two cultures.

Chile offers its soil, its climate and its vineyards, while France contributes its winemaking savoir-faire and traditions.

The result is an exceptionally elegant and complex wine. Its launch was a major milestone in the development of Chilean wines, both in Chile itself and in the international market." - Winery
