Neyen Red Blend Colchagua Valley Espiritu de Apalta 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Intense ruby red. Nose: Fresh, complex and equilibrated. Ripe blackberries, cassis and red fruits evolves with elegance in the glass. Palate: A fresh, fine and dense attack. Excepcional tanins and structure. Good balance and persistant finishing in the mouth.

Just a stunning effort. Chocolate dipped oily blackberries. Very long smooth finish. Great pairing for steak. This should give caymus or silver oak a run for their money at a nice discount. Drink now or cellar for another 5 years.

The purple-colored 2005 Espiritu de Apalta is composed of 50% Carmenere and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon bottled without filtration. It offers a spicy, toasty perfume with blue fruit and black cherry. Smooth-textured and plush on the palate, this savory, well-balanced wine has enough structure to evolve for 2ndash;3 years. The finish is long and pure.

Lush in texture, with velvety tannins carrying the dark plum, fig and black currant notes. Yet therersquo;s plenty of drive, thanks to dark coffee, chestnut and tobacco notes that fill in around the fruit and push through on the muscular, iron- and loam-filled, but polished finish. Impressive. Equal parts Carmenegrave;re and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2014.

Vivid ruby. Alluring perfume of black raspberry, boysenberry, incense and roasted coffee, with a bright floral overtone. Deep, sweet dark berry flavors are framed by supple tannins and gain a sexy floral pastille quality with air. Offers an impressive marriage of richness and vivacity, with excellent finishing clarity and persistent sweetness. This is very attractive right now but Irsquo;d hold onto it for at least another five or six years.

Neyen means "spirit" in the native Mapudungun language. The Neyen vineyard was the first in Apalta (Colchagua valley); these Carmenère and Cabernet Sauvignon vines were planted in 1890. This red wine is a full-bodied and full of spiced cassis and blackberry fruit.
