I was pretty surprised by the nose of the 2003 Almaviva because I was expecting a very ripe wine, and the nose was not; it showed some notes of beef blood and fresh meat. It was a different era for wines, and here there was more concentration, 100% new oak, and there is more extraction, the palate shows more powdery tannin. This was 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Carmenere and 3% Cabernet Franc. I think this one should be consumed before the 2002, as the fruit is receding and the structure might remain. This is a little atypical within the style of Almaviva, more of a blockbuster that ironically enough seems to be evolving at a faster pace. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com
