Aromo Estate Bottled Maule Valley 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit dank and carob like on the nose with softly vegetal aromas that recall dusty old books along with wet forest floor and a hint of mint. Smooth on entry, yet fairly bright, this shows off a nice blend of herbal red currant fruit and earthy and nutty oak notes in the mouth. There's a bit of vanilla that creeps in on the backend that gives this a bit of a simple fruit, sweet oak/vanilla feel to it, but the oak and tobacco notes on the dry finish sweep much of that away. A tale of two wines. 84pts

A bit tight on the nose with nice mineral components playing off the cigar box oak and gentle cherry fruit that’s wrapped around a soft vegetal bass note. This enters the mouth with nice balance, offering sweet fruit that has a certain transparency and juicy, fruity acidity in a fun package. There are soft tannins adding to the supple nature of this wine and the fruit powers through the mid-palate in an obvious but never rude way, then fades rather quickly leaving one with a quite earthy and lightly toasted oak finale. I think the finish here might improve with some time, but this already is quite good. 89pts
