2002 Vina Almaviva Puente Alto

Wine Description

(From 2003 Vintage) Very dense, with loads of raspberry ganache, black currant and fig fruit layered with loam, tobacco, mineral and cedar notes. Lots of grip on the finish, with impressive balance between the tannins, acidity and oak. Built like a Pauillac.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep red tinged with violet. The nose is filled with mineral notes, mesquite, nutmeg and profound aromas of black fruits, forest blackberries, and licorice root. The attack is deep and well sculpted while the evolution reveals tremendous balance. Bitter chocolate and licorice root fill the mouth, and a return of cassis, cherries and peach pips dominate the final. The vintage 2002 is remarkably dense and unctuous.
