More About This Wine
2009 Vina Almaviva Proprietary Red Wine Puente Alto
Producer: Vina Almaviva
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
93(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2012
(made from 73% cabernet sauvignon, 22% carmenere, 4% cabernet franc and 1% merlot, raised for 18 months in new French barriques): Youthful purple color. Primary dark berry and cherry pit aromas are complemented by notes of vanillin oak, mocha and Indian spices. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering sweet blueberry and cassis flavors and suggestions of dark chocolate, cola and vanilla. Becomes smokier with air and finishes with very good clarity and strong spicy persistence. This yet-to-be-released wine will no doubt reward patience.
