Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Among the very best wines being produced in South America, a "garage wine" from the celebrated Chilean winemaker Álvaro Espinoza. Made with an organic blend of Carmenère (52%), Syrah (25%) , and Cabernet Sauvignon (23%). Aged in French barrels for twelve months, then cellared in the bottle for six months.

Antiyal has been a Wine Spectator favorite ever since since its release in 2000, earning 90+ points for every vintage.

Critical Acclaim

"Antiyal's 2007 Red Blend is made up of 52% Carmenere, 25% Syrah, and 23% Cabernet Sauvignon. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it proffers a brooding bouquet of mineral, scorched earth, herbs, smoked meat, and blueberry. This leads to a dense, savory, structured, full-flavored offering that will unwind for several more years and provide pleasure through 2027."
92 Points

"Deep, bright ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of blackberry and cherry preserves, smoky herbs, Asian spices and violet, plus a touch of licorice. Juicy, sharply defined red and dark berry flavors are complemented by cracked pepper, cinnamon and a kiss of candied flowers. Seductive, open-knit and delicious now, but this wine will be even better with a few more years of bottle age."
92 Points

"Dark and slightly brawny, featuring mulled plum and currant fruit liberally laced with maduro tobacco, tapenade and charred mesquite notes. The brawny edge stretches out on the finish, with nice buried acidity keeping it all together. Should open up with modest cellaring. Carmenère, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2011 through 2013. 570 cases made. "
91 Points

"The nose delivers a mix of herbal berry, cola and earth, while the palate is fresh and deep, with lightly medicinal cherry, cola, blackberry tobacco, mocha and more. Finishes rich and chocolaty, with a rush of textbook Chilean flavors including tobacco, herbs, olive and black fruits."
91 Points

"This vintage of Alvaro Espinoza's own biodynamic wine holds to the style of previous releases, with warm fruit flavors and a lush, friendly texture. Composed of 52 percent carmenère blended with syrah and cabernet, this is an herbal, spicy, black-fruited wine for lamb curry."

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
