Carmenere, not Merlot, and it was very good. Kept us warm on a cold rainy March afternoon.

Nice dark color. Nose with hints of cherry, blackberry, mocha. Nice round mouthfeel, short on midpalate and a little hot, but nice vanilla oak finish. 88pts.

Pepper, plums, and an herbal aroma on the nose. Opened with sweet blackberry and currant notes, which faded into deep coffee, tobacco, and oak undertones. Not overly complex, but has some nice qualities.

The Don has been the aristocrat the Chilean Cabernet since its first vintage, in 1987. Concha y Toro sells millions of cases of wine each year, but this is its flagship, made from the poor alluvial soil of the cool Puente Alto vineyard, located in the upper reaches of the Maipo Valley. winemaker Enrique Tirado says the conditions in 2005 were ideal, with a long, moderate growing season that allowed him to wait for full ripe grapes. Tirado added 3 percent Cabernet Franc to the blend and aged the wine 15 months in French oak to create a red with a big core of roasted chestnut, warm fog and tar flavors.

Deep, a bit reduced on the nose, and full as can be, with blackberry, cassis and prune aromas. The palate is super rich and concentrated, and frankly a bit heady. Flavors of burnt brown sugar, toast, tobacco, pepper and baked berry fruits are delicious, and the finish is dense and long. Drinkable now but best in another two to four years. This marks the 20th anniversary of Concha y Toroandrsquo;s Don Melchor Cabernet.

Still a touch tight, but dense, focused and layered, with well-integrated structure underneath loam, blackberry, espresso, tobacco and sage notes. The long finish has nice drive, with loam edge stretching out. This has the poise and balance for cellaring. Drink now through 2017.

Glass-staining ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry compote and potpourri, made more complex by notes of musky herbs and tobacco. The yield in andrsquo;07 was reportedly pitifully low but this wine comes off as lithe and energetic, with excellent clarity and sweet red fruit character. Finishes with noteworthy length, clarity and a juicy red fruit character, and with very soft tannins. This will drink well young or with age. I also had the chance to re-visit the 2006 Don Melchor, and it has put on weight and richness since last year, but with no loss of vivacity. Iandrsquo;d keep my hands off my bottles for at least another five years.

Almaviva 2007 - Baron Rothschild: Almaviva 2007 - Rotwein von Baron RothschildDieser Almaviva von Baron Rothschild begeistert mit recht freizügigen Aromen und zeigt mit seiner regelmäßigen, reinern Qualität wahre Klasse. Im Glas wirkt er dicht und tief rubinrot. Sein Bukett enthält Aromen von reifen schwarzen Johannisbeeren, von Pflaumen und Brombeeren, welche mit feinen mineralischen Anklängen verschmelzen. Hinzu kommen Noten von Vanille, Kaffee, getrockneter Orangenschale, Tabak und Kakao. Am Gaumen lässt sich ein ausgewogenes Spiel mit sehr schöner Säure und raffiniertem, gut strukturiertem Tannin bemerken. Er präsentiert sich elegant und kraftvoll mit einer großartigen Länge im Finale. Wir empfehlen ihn zu würzig-aromatischen Fleischgerichten, besonders zu Wild und gegrilltem Rind- oder Lammfleisch, er schmeckt aber auch köstlich zu geräucherten Wurstwaren und Wildgeflügel. Der Wein sollte mindestens zwei Stunden vor dem Genuss geöffnet werden.Weingut: Baron RothschildLand: ChileRegion: Maipo ValleyRebsorten: 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Carménère, 7% Cabernet Franc, 1% MerlotAlkoholgehalt: 15,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 4,0 g/lRestsüße: 2,25 g/lInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (18 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab Jahrgang  Rotwein > Chile > Maipo Valley

With a great nose of currant confiture and cocoa powder, this full-scale Cabernet sports dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit, layered with loam, cedar, tobacco, mineral and coffee. Long and authoritative finish just sails on thanks to rather regal tannins. Best from 2007 through 2016.

Really inviting wine, with plush currant, black cherry, mint and smoke. Ripe and fleshy, yet has serious underlying structure and density. Mineral and sanguine nuances peek out on the finish. Harmonious and expressive now, with more to come.
