Emiliana Red Blend Colchagua Valley Coyam 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Rafael and José Guilisasti were visionaries in the late 1990s when they saw that the market was beginning to change and that consumers worldwide were becoming more aware of the products they were consuming, not only for health reasons, but also with respect to their social and environmental impact. They therefore asked winemaking consultant Alvaro Espinoza to join them in the process of converting a conventional Chilean winery into one that was 100% organic and biodynamic with the firm objective of creating wines of the highest quality with great respect for nature. Now, after more than a decade, what began as a dream has become a complete portfolio of wines backed by major national and international awards and recognition and that meet the new need of today’s consumers. Coyam is the word for “Oak Forrest” used by the original inhabitants of Chile: The Mapuches. Ancient oaks surround the Emiliana vineyard in the Colchagua Valley where the grapes for this wine are biodynamically grown and hand picked.Coyam is intensely violet-red in color. The nose expresses a harmony of ripe dark fruit, berries, blackcurrant, and forest fruits that delicately intermingle with the oak to deliver soft mineral notes, toffee, and chocolate. The palate offers a very good body, smooth, well-rounded tannins, and a long finish, showing its character and personality. This wine is recommended for long aging to further develop its character.

Rich very spicy nose with good intensity. High tannin, medium plus to high alcohol, full in body with rich concentrated fruit. very intense with a long finish and rich ripe fruit. Meaty notes with flavors of mulberry, spice and hints of herbs.
