This is tight on the nose with aromatic French oak and a small core of rather precise, lightly candied black currant/blackberry fruit peeking out. A touch soft in the mouth, this nonetheless is well-balanced with a nice combination of weight and intensity. Like the nose, one gets an impression of a wine not giving up its all but what is here is very attractive: red and black currant fruit, a nice streak of earth, a hint of caramel from the oak, all leading to a lovely finish that is moderately long and fruit-driven (though not fruity), with the oak lurking until the finale, where it adds some peppery spice. 91pts

Lots of sweet fruit and spicy oak greets the nose along with notes of candied herbs, dried tomato and black currant fruit. Supple yet bright, this shows a lovely, lively character in the mouth with a blend of red and black berry fruit wrapped around subtle herb and clear baking spice flavors. There's a hint of creaminess to the texture, and a touch of sweetness from oak but this remains refined with good power and lovely balance. The finish is moderately long with a nice blue plum and spice note. Very complete wine. 90pts

I find myself smacking my lips long after finishing a glass. This was really layered: coffee and dark berries on the nose; juicy fruit on the palate; vanilla and toasty oak on the finish. Lots of body with very smooth, soft tannins. I wonder how this would fare with steak & chimichurri, would it stand up?

Deep almost opaque violet, notes of red cherry and mocha, simple but forward moderate plus intensity nose. Moderate plus, juicy acidity, moderate plus alcohol and moderate plus to high intensity, full body. Nice red fruits on the palate, stewed strawberry, cola berry, hint of cherry Jolly Rancher, hint of chocolate covered cherry, nice melding of sweet, sour and bitter, quite a lot of toasty oak. Moderate plus to high tannin, somewhat grainy with an elegant and long finish.

There's a lovely mouthfeel to the layers of coffee, red licorice, red plum and crushed black currant fruit, which all glide over the loamy finish. Very solid. Drink now through 2011.

Bright yellow. Pungent melon, pit fruit and dried fig aromas, lifted by exotic floral and lees notes that gain strength with air. Dry but fleshy nectarine and pear flavors become sweeter with air and pick up a gentle tarragon note. Stains the palate on the incisive finish, which leaves sweet honeydew, orchard fruit and herbal notes behind. Iandrsquo;d like to see this up against a number of $50+ American chardonnays.

Almaviva is the joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Mouton Rothschild and Viña Concha y Toro. A truly distinctive wine that has received nothing but exceptional accolades since its first vintage and proven to be worthy of standing along side the Baron’s other great wines, Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Opus One. Production is limited of this unique blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Carmenere, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Merlot. Grapes are sourced from low yielding old vines and the wine is aged 10 months in new French chateau barrels, then transfered to 2 year old barrels for 6-8 months. Egg white fining and no filtration. Steve Tanzer tasted it out of barrel and scored it 93+. Wine Spectator scored it 96 and said "Classically built, with a compact and fine-tuned frame giving way to rich cassis, black cherry reduction, fig paste, spice box and licorice notes woven with fine tannins, juicy acidity and a firm minerally spine. The finish reverberates the focused flavors, but should expand with mid-term cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2020." Limited time SALE!!!!!

Superfresh, with vibrant tangerine, yellow apple and heather notes backed by nice cut on the mineral-filled finish. A deliciously unadorned style. Drink now through 2012.

Some of the finest wines produced in Chile, particularly from the Carmenere grape, are being bottled and sold under the Terrunyo label under the direction of veteran winemaker Ignacio Recabarren.

Opaque ruby. Black and blue fruits on the nose and in the mouth, with complicating licorice and floral nuances and a kick of cracked pepper. Smooth and expansive, with subtle tannins adding shape and grip on a long, spicy finish.
