Tasting Notes:

A gorgeous, fully mature wine, with alluring mint and black tea aromas giving way to a supple palate of mulled fig, plum and cherry fruit all laced with hints of iron and mesquite. The finish is long finish, with no firm edges. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Cabernet Franc.--Non-blind Viña Almaviva vertical (January 2011). Drink now through 2014. 9,000 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

Almaviva, the joint venture between Mouton-Rothschild's Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and Chile's Concha y Toro has fashioned a worthy successor to their vaunted 1996 (rated a 92 by Robert Parker in The Wine Advocate's Issue 122). The dark ruby-colored 1997 Almaviva exhibits aromas of black currants, blackberries, and loads of grilled oak spices. Cassis, assorted dark fruits, and layers of creamy wood flavors are found in this full-bodied and superbly concentrated wine. It is opulent, complex, intense, and loaded with ripe, round tannins. Projected maturity: 2003-2012+.

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.
