Intense aromas of blueberries, blackberries, sweet tobacco and a dark chocolate character. Full body with finer tannins than earlier vintages, yet they are still a little austere and very present. Delicious shaved dark chocolate and dark fruit. 74% cabernet sauvignon, 21% carmenere, 5% cabernet franc. Drink now. Aug 2014, www.jamessuckling.com

The 2005 Almaviva continues the string of successes for this collaborative effort between Concha y Toro and Chateau Mouton-Rothschild. In this vintage, the wine is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Carmenere, and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new French oak for 18 months before bottling without fining or filtration. Purple-colored, it offers an expressive bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, tobacco, black currants, and blackberry. This leads to an elegantly styled wine with layers of sweet fruit, succulent, spicy, black fruit flavors, and superb depth and concentration. It has enough structure to evolve for 5-7 years and will be at its best from 2015 to 2030. Oct 2008, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2015-2030
