Heiner Lobenberg über:
Vina Almaviva 2019


Lobenberg: Volle Cabernet-Frucht in kalifornischem Stil, sehr warme Frucht, samtig, vollmundig, üppig, aber ohne übermäßige Marmeladigkeit, tanninreich und doch weich, die seidig-elegante Linie steht im Vordergrund. 98-100/100


Decanter über: Vina Almaviva

-- Decanter: Founded by Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Concha y Toro in Puente Alto, Almaviva excels with its Bordeaux-inflected reds created by Michel Friou. Its 2019 cuveé – 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Carmenere, and the rest made up of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot – enjoyed an extraordinary year resulting in a fragrant nose of dark fruit, lavender, eucalyptus, blackcurrant and cigar box aromas. The refined palate has a fresh core and velvety feel. 98/100


Suckling über: Vina Almaviva

-- Suckling: The aromas of iodine and blackcurrants with roses and lavender make the wine extremely perfumed. It’s full-bodied with a tight, fine-tannined palate that shows linear flow through the center palate. It’s vertical and integrated, adding depth and serious quality to the wine. 97/100


Tim Atkin über: Vina Almaviva

-- Tim Atkin: The 2019 Almaviva is a little riper and fleshier than the 2018, but there's not much to choose between them in terms of quality. Easily handling its 15% alcohol, this is a seamless, perfumed, beautifully judged cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon with 23% Carmenère, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot, with glossy tannins, cassis, raspberry and black cherry fruit, subtle cigar box oak and a graceful, lingering finish. 2024-35. 97/100


Falstaff über: Vina Almaviva

-- Falstaff: Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, dezente Randaufhellung. Klassische Cabernet-Nuancen nach Schwarzen Ribiseln, kandierte Veilchen, etwas Toffee und Lakritze, feine Edelholznote, vielschichtiges, einladendes Bukett. Stoffig, elegant, feine Fruchtsüße, balanciertes Säurespiel, reife Tannine, dunkle Frucht und feine Mineralität im Abgang, sicheres Entwicklungspotenzial, bereits in der Jugend verführerisch. 97/100


Parker über: Vina Almaviva

-- Parker: The 2019 Almaviva is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Carmenère (from Peumo), 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot, higher in Carmenere and reflecting a warmer and drier vintage when then bottled wine reached 15% alcohol. It fermented with destemmed grapes in stainless steel and matured in French oak barrels, 75% of them new, for 18 months. Here, the Carmenere adds herbal freshness and changes the aromatic profile when compared with the 2019 Epu. 2019 was a good year for Carmenere, which suffers in extremely warm years like 2017, but in moderately warm years like 2019, the variety displays that herbal character and has good density. It's full-bodied and round, with saturated tannins, tasty, spicy and long, with a dry, serious finish. It's balsamic, with notes of camphor and a silky and velvety texture. 200,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2021. 95+/100
