Vina Almaviva Puente Alto

Wine Description

(From 1996 Vintage) Immensely rich with striking blackcurrant flavours, a firm tannic structure and a long, long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Intense, dark ruby red. Chocolate, molasses and a blend of cassis and forest berries create a complex nose where fresh coffee, leather, forest cedar and grilled citrus zests appear subtly throughout the evolution. Frank elegance and a refined structure are revealed on the round and supple attack. Caramel harmonizes with smoky dark cocoa and ripe tannins for a beautifully smooth finish. A wine defined by balance, complexity and class.
