Wine Spectator
"Gorgeous aromas of warm chocolate ganache and mocha lead the way for a rich, velvety palate loaded with currant, fig paste, black licorice, cassis bush and bramble notes. The long, juicy finish has great grip and density, with echoes of graphite, dark fruit and minerality. This should really reward cellaring. Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot (the first vintage to include Petit Verdot). Best from 2009 through 2019. "

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2005 Almaviva is dark rubycolored with a classy nose of smoke, violets, mineral, pencil lead, espresso, black currants, and blackberry. This is followed by a suppletextured wine with layers of sweet fruit, excellent depth and concentration, and well integrated oak, tannin, and acidity. There is enough structure to support 57 years of further evolution in the bottle and it should continue to drink well through 2037. Almaviva is a partnership of Bordeaux firstgrowth Chateau MoutonRothschild and Concha y Toro. Made in the style of top of the line Pauillac, the blend is typically 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2223% Carmenere (a very close relative of Merlot), and 45% Cabernet Franc. It spends 18 months in new French oak and is bottled unfined and unfiltered."
