Emiliana Red Blend Colchagua Valley Gê 2005

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

"G" is Chile's only certified biodynamic wine, now in its second vintage. Alvaro Espinoza makes this syrah blend from Emiliana's estate vineyard in eastern Colchagua. At three years of age, this is still extremely youthful, with wild black fruit, sweet spice and chocolatey tannins. The wine is so powerful that it remains impenetrable hours after the bottle is first opened. Cellar it for five years or more to let the forceful structure relax. It should age with grace.

The 2006 GE is 30% Syrah, 30% Carmenere, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 16% Merlot. It was produced from biodynamically farmed grapes from the winery's Los Robles estate. Purple-colored, it has an alluring nose of pain grille, scorched earth, spice box, black currant, blackberry, and blueberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with layers of savory flavor, succulent fruit, and enough structure to evolve for 3-4 years. With excellent concentration, depth, and balance, it should drink well from 2012 to 2020.

Impressively rich, with loads of blueberry compote, braised fig, graphite and roasted earth notes waiting to emerge fully from behind the wall of dark, spice-laden toast. There's great buried acidity and a long, grip-filled finish. Loaded with character, this is built for the cellar. Syrah, Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2010 through 2013.

Deep ruby. Seductively perfumed aromas of dark cherry, black currant, licorice and mocha. Fleshy dark berry flavors are framed by velvety tannins and pick up zestier red fruit character with air. The tannins build on the finish, which is impressively sweet and persistent. Iandrsquo;d stash this infant away for at least another five years. This Demeter-certified wine was made from biodynamically grown grapes, with the consultation of Alvaro Epinoza, owner of Antiyal.
