  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

    Dense but racy, thanks to plenty of fine-grained tannins that carry the shaved vanilla bean, black currant paste, fig and loam notes through a superlong finish. Additional tobacco and cedar hints chime in on the finish. Really well-built, showing a Maipo profile with a Bordeaux-like structure. Needs cellaring to fill out fully. Cabernet Sauvignon, CarmenŠre and Cabernet Franc.

    The 2005 Almaviva continues the string of successes for this collaborative effort between Concha y Toro and Chateau Mouton-Rothschild. In this vintage, the wine is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Carmenere, and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new French oak for 18 months before bottling without fining or filtration. Purple-colored, it offers an expressive bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, tobacco, black currants, and blackberry. This leads to an elegantly styled wine with layers of sweet fruit, succulent, spicy, black fruit flavors, and superb depth and concentration.

    Very nice after 1 hour of decanting. Bordeaux with a peppery, spicy flavor.
