The 2009 Almaviva is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Carmenere, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Merlot and likewise, aged in new French oak for 18 months. It has impressive clarity on the nose with blackberry, briary and espresso aromas that are well defined, but not as intense as previous vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, a powdery texture and crisp blackberry laced with espresso towards the firm, quite masculine, dry finish. It will need three of four years to coalesce and mellow. Drink 2015–2025.

Classically built, with a compact and fine-tuned frame giving way to rich cassis, black cherry reduction, fig paste, spice box and licorice notes woven with fine tannins, juicy acidity and a firm, minerally spine. The finish reverberates the focused flavors, but should expand with mid-term cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2020.

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 ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A joint project between Barons de Rothschild S.A. and Concha y Toro, the 2009 Almaviva is a deep, intense ruby with purple tones. The nose is pure, well-focused and elegant. Complex and layered, it reveals fresh and delciate aromas of cassis, blackberries and violet, with fine notes of vanilla, cocoa, licorice and spices. This wine fills the mouth with smooth, well-refined, juicy tannins, underlining the abundance of ripe fruit. The texture is incredibly round and silky, and the finish is long and fleshy. It is a superb wine, precise in its character, accessible and remarkably balanced.
