Marchesi Antinori Viña Haras de Pirque Albis 2016
Pencil lead, warm earth, crushed wild herbs, saddle leather, cigar wrapper, and chocolate frame the brambly blackberries and sour cherries in the 2016 Albis. A blend of 81% Cab Sauv and 19% Carménère in this vintage, the 2016 Albis showcases its Chilean terroir in its elegant yet sauvage style. Rich and full-bodied, this wine has tremendous balance and harmony, and its power feels focused as it builds to a sustained, delicious finish. Enjoyable now and over the next few years, likely longer!
