Tasting Notes

JS95

This shows wonderful length with subtle dark fruits as well as mint, floral and walnut undertones. Full body, with fine tannins that give this wine energy and focus. It's long and flavorful. A blend of 67% cabernet sauvignon, 25% carmenere, 5% cabernet franc, 2% merlot and 1% petit verdot.

WA93

The 2011 Almaviva, from a cool, dry vintage, is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot which feels young, fresh, serious and quite classical-styled with notes of cassis, graphite and ripe black fruit, but also some raspberries and aromas of sweet spices, licorice and fennel. It has a special brightness and light, starting to slowly develop some complexity. The palate is concentrated, medium to full-bodied with ripe, round tannins, no edges, good concentration and weight. It’s still a baby, a little marked by the oak, but with enough density and freshness to come into greater balance. It should grow up slowly and live a long life. Today I see this 2011 slightly above the 2010, slightly more complex. Drink 2016-2029.
