A blend of 86% cabernet sauvignon and 14% merlot. Decanted for 20 hrs but in hindsight, this should be extended to at least 36 hrs. Intense ruby garnet with a lighter rim. Youthful earthy nose with notes of leather strapping and tobacco. Dry, full-bodied with silky texture. High acidity, zippy sensations of rich, ripe blackberry fruit and trails of sour plum skin. Very smooth finish. Excellent. Drink 2015 – 2025+. 97/100.

In a rainy harvest, there are the people who panic and pick while the fruit is still diluted, and the people who wait. With a fine terroir, waiting is often the best defense against the weather. And by the smell of the rsquo;94 Mouton, these are the people who waited. The wine shows a super maturity straight through. Itrsquo;s filled with potent, luscious, roasted fruit flavors. New oak boosts the richness further with caramelized sweetness. The wine is quite pretty, but it lacks the extra dimension of a first in this vintage.

This beautifully made wine could be considered a sleeper of the vintage. The wine boasts a dark purple color, followed by a sweet, pain grilleacute;, roasted nut, and cassis-scented bouquet that is just beginning to open. In the mouth, the wine may not possess the body and volume of a vintage such as 1990 or 1989, but there is more richness of fruit, a sweet, ripe, pureness to the wine, as well as medium body and outstanding balance. This moderately tannic, well-focused, surprisingly rich 1993 is capable of 15ndash;20 years of evolution. Anticipated maturity: 2004ndash;2015.

Ruby-red, not quite as deep as the rsquo;96. Exotic, sweet aromas of currant lead pencil, spice and woodsmoke. A huge wine that conveys a sense of sheer power, but not quite as delineated or stylish as the rsquo;96. this really explodes on the aftertaste, but the rsquo;96 is more subtle. Clearly firth-grown size, but less fine that the rsquo;96.

Firm texture and complex aromas of chocolate, fruit and cedar. Itrsquo;s all held together with sleek, firm tannins. Very good fruit extraction.

Blackberry, cherry and currant with just a hint of toasted oak. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a lovely combination of ripe fruit and vanilla character. Goes on and on. Long and very stylish. Balanced and refined. Best after 2011.

Complex aromas of tobacco, cedar, berry and currants. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and ripe tannins. Not as good as a barrel sample tasted earlier, but still outstanding for the vintage. Best after 2009.

Bright ruby-red. Perfumed, sexy aromas of cassis, roasted plum, violet, pepper and exotic spices. Quite dry but densely packed, with pungent cassis, leather and mineral flavors complimented by sexy oak tones and a hint of dried herbs. Grew fuller and sweeter as it opened in the glass. Finishes with major toothcoating tannins that avoid dryness. Built for long aging. This tastes richer today than it did from barrel.

Winemaker's Notes:

Made from a blend of classic Bordeaux varieties, in which Cabernet Sauvignon predominates, Almaviva is the result of a felicitous encounter between two cultures. Chile offers its soil, its climate and its vineyards, while France contributes its winemaking savoir-faire and traditions. The result is an exceptionally elegant and complex wine.  Its launch was a major milestone in the development of Chilean wines, both in Chile itself and in the international market.
