Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The style of the 2004 Almaviva seems to go back to the more elegant style. They had some rain during the harvest that might have created some issues. The final blend was 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Carmenere, and they didn't use any Cabernet Franc, perhaps because of some rains in April that could have affected the variety (2000 and 2004 are the only vintages without any Cabernet Franc). The nose shows some developed aromas, spices and a hint of leather, quite classical, with a medium-bodied palate with some grainy tannins that would welcome some food. A little less concentrated and dense than other years.
