The Wine Advocate Parker |95/100
2018-2032 Period during which the wine should ideally be consumed.

Deep ruby red color, intense and brilliant. The nose reveals delicate aromas of red fruits and berries, such as raspberry and blackberry, which blend harmoniously with the notes of caramel and coffee, offering a refined and distinguished nose. The elegance of the wine is underlined by its roundness and a fresh mouth feel. Subtle frame but presents the blend with tannins, leading to a vanilla and peppery finish.
Complex and luxurious, Almaviva 2016 is remarkably graceful and silky wine, true to its predecessors in style and precision.

The 2019 Almaviva is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Carmenère (from Peumo), 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot, higher in Carmenere and reflecting a warmer and drier vintage when then bottled wine reached 15 %alcohol. It fermented with destemmed grapes in stainless steel and matured in French oak barrels, 75% of them new, for 18 months. Here, the Carmenere adds herbal freshness and changes the aromatic profile when compared with the 2019 Epu. 2019 was a good year for Carmenere, which suffers in extremely warm years like 2017, but in moderately warm years like 2019, the variety displays that herbal character and has good density. It's full-bodied and round, with saturated tannins, tasty, spicy and long, with a dry, serious finish. It's balsamic, with notes of camphor and a silky and velvety texture. 200,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2021.
