Puente Alto, Maipo Valley

Don Melchor Puente Alto Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, coffee and chocolate wrapped in toasty oak. On the palate well pronounced flavors of ripe black fruits, blackberry and cherry, cassis, espresso and cacao. Soft tannins, long finish ending with oak, fruit and spicy earthy notes. Wow! — 14 days ago

Limited Edition Maipo Alto Carménère 2002

Purchased this a number of years ago at Boconariz, a fantastic wine bar in Santiago. Absolutely terrific wine that still has a lot of fruit and balance after 19 years. Seriously doubt this will improve any further…but why wait? — 8 months ago

Yes. Exactly right. Shared by a friend and if I had tasted blind I would not have guessed anywhere close. Drinking beautifully at a young age. A few years more would be interesting but definitely not necessary. Very accessible now. Concha y Toro over delivers with this one and great value.

Private Reserve Don Melchor Puente Alto Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Outstanding after an hour or more in the glass. Silky smooth all the way through the finish. Blueberry and blackberry dark fruit, layered with a touch of dark chocolate and a lighter layer of licorice. Extremely well balanced to drink now, and can probably sleep for another year or two, but I would not push it. — 6 months ago

Viñedo Chadwick Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Delectable Wine
9.5

A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot from Maipo Alto that spent 22 months in French barrels, 80% new and 10% in casks. This was a cold year, making for the ideal ripeness. The delicate, seductive nose combines raspberry with young blackcurrant, herb and mint. Well-balanced, it presents a smooth texture and a powerful flavor juicy on the tongue with just a hint of pyrazine that underlines the smoky finish. A serious wine.

Santa Rita

Estate Bottled Casa Real Alto Santa Rita Old Vines Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Apparently one of Chile’s best Cabernets, sourced from 50-year-old vineyards located in Santa Rita’s Alto Jahuel estate, in the Maipo Alto Valley. Rich, round, quite powerful (though lighter than the Napa Cabernet tasted next to it). Aromas of dark fruit (black currant), black olives. Some pepper and leather/meaty notes. Quite elegant, but totally overpriced — 3 months ago

Almaviva Puente Alto Red Blend 2002

A really nice wine - more refined than some other Maipo Valley wines that are more Carmeniere dominant. Smooth and still lots of tannin and fruit. Dark berry and oak in the nose. Lovely. (Reminds me a bit of #Quintessa- but haven’t given any of those years for the edges to smooth out) — 5 months ago

Marqués de Casa Concha Etiqueta Negra Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Iron and dark fruits on the nose. Coffee and dark chocolate flavors with a discrete sour finish. A little bit awkward. It needs 1 year to achieve a nice balance. — 2 years ago
