Wine Spectator, May 2008
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... 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 Carmenère and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2009 through 2016.

The 2005 Almaviva is dark ruby-colored with a classy nose of smoke violets mineral pencil lead espresso black currants and blackberry. This is followed by a supple-textured wine with layers of sweet fruit excellent depth... The 2005 Almaviva is dark ruby-colored with a classy nose of smoke violets mineral pencil lead espresso black currants and blackberry. This is followed by a supple-textured wine with layers of sweet fruit excellent depth and concentration and well integrated oak tannin and acidity. There is enough structure to support 5-7 years of further evolution in the bottle and it should continue to drink well through 2037. Almaviva is a partnership of Bordeaux first-growth Chateau Mouton-Rothschild and Concha y Toro. Made in the style of top of the line Pauillac the blend is typically 73% Cabernet Sauvignon 22-23% Carmenere (a very close relative of Merlot) and 4-5% Cabernet Franc. It spends 18 months in new French oak and is bottled unfined and unfiltered.Various importers. Almaviva is sold through the Bordeaux network in the same way as Chateau Mouton-Rothschild.
