Tasting notes
It is a sophisticated elegant wine. Beautiful ruby red color, Intense cassis, strawberry flavors, with combined hints of black cherries and chocolate. Oak is not predominant but well combined and still present in the background in order to keep the fruit as a principal character of this wine. Solid and ripe tannins but with 2 years of aging already soft and friendly. An outstanding wine for bottle aging (5-10 years).

The 2006 Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon has 10% Merlot in its blend. It received the identical barrel/tank regimen. Purple-colored, it exhibits aromas of cedar, spice box, tobacco, black currant, and blackberry. Layered yet elegant, it has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years. Balanced and lengthy, it should drink well from 2009 to 2016.

Juicy, with a solid core of blackberry and black cherry fruit layered with sweet toast. Stays fresh and ripe through the finish. This was the better of two bottles. Drink now through 2009. 100,000 cases made. ĖJM

Aromas of cocoa, cassis and marshmallow are sweet and attractive, while the palate feels just right and tastes of cassis, plum, caramel and pepper. While it is powerful, itís not a runaway tank. Thus expect a sly finish thatís toasty, dark and polite. Drink now and over the next couple of years. Very good Cab from one of Chileís top producers. M.S.
