Food Pairings for Neyen Red Blend Colchagua Valley Espiritu de Apalta
"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. Its 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."" """
