93 Points Powerful and pure-tasting, with plush dark plum, cherry tart and dark currant flavors. Refined and minerally on the finish, with dried mint accents and plenty of chocolaty richness. Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère. Drink now through 2025.

92 Points This has good depth, the tannins and ripe flavors building nicely on the palate with a ton of fresh-blackberry and floral character. Good length for a 2016. A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Carmenere.

91 Points Tightly focused aromas of berry fruits, leather, wild herbs and oak lead to a full-bodied palate that draws inward. Well-applied toasty oak results in flavors of chocolate, baking spices and black fruits. On the finish, this Cabernet-heavy blend is warming and lightly herbal. Drink through 2023. Ste. Michelle Wine Estates.

90 Points Classy, gently perfumed with aromas of ripe blackberries, cassis, earth and fresh herbs. Some incipient complexity and will improve over time.

Albis is an elegant and captivating blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère. Albis is the first wine produced by the Antinori family in Chile and its name celebrates the dawn of a new day in viticulture. It represents the unification of two hemispheres, the Old and New Worlds, with the specific aim of crafting a great wine in the heart of the Maipo Valley. It is a rich, well-balanced organic wine with a long persistent finish.

This wine is ideal with slow-cooked lamb and beef, hearty pasta dishes or aged cheeses. Winemaker Description.
