Antiyal Alto del Maipo Valley 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Spicy on the nose with herb, grass, balsam, and passion fruit note all embedded in gently oaky dark fruits. Bright and almost tart on entry with blackberry and black currant flavors paired with some soft tobacco notes, toasted nut notes and a bed of slightly earthy, compost notes that are actually quite attractive. A bit lean and elegant, bitter chocolate notes pop on the finish which shows a touch of aggressive wood tannin and a hint of lingering sweetness. A pretty fruity wine but one that remains relatively bright and light on its feet. 90pts

The 2010 Antiyal is a blend of 47% Carmenere, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Syrah. It has a very well defined bouquet with blackberry leaf, crushed stone, and limestone. This is very expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with super-fine tannins. It is very well balanced with grace and poise towards the natural, refined blackberry and sea salt tinged finish. This is another beautiful wine from Alvaro. Drink now-2017. Roasted, spicy and gritty aromas are common for this Carmenère-led blend from Alvaro Espinoza. The palate is full and ripe, with tannic grip. Flavors of buttery oak, vanilla, blackberry and olive lead to a toasty finish, with mocha and bitter chocolate notes. Overall, it's an oaky, ripe, strong-boned Maipo wine to drink now-2017. - M.S. An earthy yet ripe red, herb-tinged, with a chewy core of plum skin and wild berry notes that lead to a slightly firm finish and an aftertaste of tobacco and ganache that reverberates on the dark finish.
