Excellent. 2 hour decant - lots of sediment. Bordeaux Blend with flavor profile which is (I assume) the carmenere.

WINE MAKERS NOTES: COLOR: Intense inked dark red with purple hints NOSE: Exuberant and complex, with red and black fruit such as plums, black cherries combined with currant, berries, dry figs with black cocoa and a violet touch. Sweet spices like clover and vanilla give an elegant touch towards the finish. MOUTH: Well balanced, an elegant wine which has a bright attack followed by round, velvety and polished tannins filling the mid palate and a rich long lasting finish. SERVICE AND PAIRING: Decant for 3 hours and enjoy at room temperature. Ideal companion for game, lamb, and entrecote fillet. Also good with rich cocoa chocolate desserts.

Simply awesome! It will do well for years to come, but drinking it now is not regretable. Big, layered and lasting.

This is a really wonderful wine. Had I known it was WS wine of the year, I probably would not have opened it (good thing I have more). The wine is definitely too young right now. It is massive, with gobs of black fruit, a slight brambly characteristic and wonderful hints of toasty vanilla. Will be interesting to see how it evolves over the next 5 years.

Very primary at this stage, but showing great potential for future greatness. Decanted for 1.5 hours. Dark purple (almost black) robe, solid to the rim. Still very tight, with practically no bouquet at all. Smooth, silky, rich mid-palate with plenty of viscosity. Deep, succulent blackberry and cassis notes. If Vina Almaviva could be considered a Left-Bank Bordeaux blend, this wine is its Right-Bank counterpart. I will hold my remaining three bottles for at least three years.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
