Neyen Red Blend Colchagua Valley Espiritu de Apalta 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"70% carmenere - 30% cabernet sauvignon; ALC.14% by vol. from klwines.com: The Neyen Espiritu de Apalta is a blend of 70% 100-year-old, ungrafted Carmenere and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Neyen spends 14 months in oak, one-third of which is new. The wine has great, bold color. On the nose it has rich cedar and spice with black cherry fruit. It’s big and full of sweet berry fruit on the palate with lots of cedar and spice, toasty oak and plenty of ripe tannin. Well structured, it is sure to age well. This wine is a real new-world-meets-old-world style and more akin to a top wine of the Médoc. The Wine Spectator gave the 2003 Neyen Espíritu de Apalta 90 points. Our Mundo Hispanico buyer, Anne Pickett, thinks the 2004 is even better. Enjoy this wine now or over the next ten years with all manner of hearty fare like a flank steak with Chimichurri sauce.""

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
