Tasting Notes:

Shows the cooler profile of the vintage, with mint, sage and roasted fig notes gliding over cedar-tinged tannins. A lush, velvety feel takes over on the finish, with the fig fruit lingering nicely. Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère.--Non-blind Viña Almaviva vertical (January 2011). Drink now through 2014. 9,500 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

The style of the 2004 Almaviva seems to go back to the more elegant style. They had some rain during the harvest that might have created some issues. The final blend was 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Carmenere, and they didn't use any Cabernet Franc, perhaps because of some rains in April that could have affected the variety (2000 and 2004 are the only vintages without any Cabernet Franc). The nose shows some developed aromas, spices and a hint of leather, quite classical, with a medium-bodied palate with some grainy tannins that would welcome some food. A little less concentrated and dense than other years.

description Producer information Professional reviews

In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.
