This is crazy with mushrooms, black truffle, blackberries and hot stone. Old-vine magic. Full body, dense and so polished with integrated and melted tannins. Greatness and respect. A blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon and 45% carmenere. Made from organically grown grapes. 120-year-old cabernet and 70-year-old carmenere. Amazing. Drink or hold. ... More details

Ripe, foresty aromas of cassis, sous bois and root beer are classy and elegant. While this is saturated on the palate, it isn't outright syrupy or fat. A ripe berry fruit flavor profile includes spice notes and a hint of minty green, while chocolate mint and spice flavors take over on a lush and saturated palate. Hailing from a hot year, this is a delicious and well-balanced fruit bomb to drink through 2024. Editors' Choice.

I find the 2015 Neyen quite ripe and powerful, with a Mediterranean character, faintly earthy and dusty with aromas of esparto grass and aromatic herbs. It's a full-bodied, powerful and concentrated red blend of 55% Cabernet sauvignon and 45% Carmenere. It has grainy tannins and a faint chalkiness. 11,500 bottles were filled in December 2016 after an élevage of 14 month in barriques and a further six months in 3,000-liter oak foudres .

55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Carménère from Apalta, Neyen 2015 is dark in color with a brick-dust meniscus. It presents a moderate nose of cassis, mint and blackberry given oxidative character by the aging process (four years in barrels and casks), along with a terse texture and a classically expressive finish.

Ripe and rich-tasting, with flavors of dark plum, cherry tart and dried blackberry, backed by firm acidity and fresh tannins. Shiso leaf and dried basil notes emerge on the minerally finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère. Drink now through 2023. 1,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
Winery
Complex aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant mix with notes of vanilla and subtle pepper, cedar and leather. The palate is fresh and elegant, with smooth tannins and a persistent finish.

Region: Valle Central

The Valle Central in Chile has long since been one of South America's most productive and prodigious wine regions, with millions of bottles leaving the wineries of the region each year. The climate of Valle Central is hugely varied, thanks to the many micro-climates caused by the geological features of the region. As such, a relatively wide range of grape varietals thrive there, depending on the location. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot do very well in the warmer, more humid areas, whilst white grapes such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Carmenere can be found at higher altitudes. The region itself has been producing wines for an astonishingly long time; since the 16th century, vines have been cultivated in the Maipo Valley and close to the capital, Santiago, and the wine industry of Valle Central is now stronger than ever.

Country: Chile

Chile has a long and rich wine history which dates back to the Spanish conquistadors of the 16th century, who were the first to discover that the wonderful climate and fertile soils of this South American country were ideal for vine cultivation. It has only been in the past forty or fifty years, however, that Chile as a modern wine producing nation has really had an impact on the rest of the world. Generally relatively cheap in price,Whilst being widely regarded as definitively 'New World' as a wine producing country, Chile has actually been cultivating grapevines for wine production for over five hundred years. The Iberian conquistadors first introduced vines to Chile with which to make sacramental wines, and although these were considerably different in everything from flavor, aroma and character to the wines we associate with Chile today, the country has a long and interesting heritage when it comes to this drink. Chilean wine production as we know it first arose in the country in the mid to late 19th century, when wealthy landowners and industrialists first began planting vineyards as a way of adopting some European class and style. They quickly discovered that the hot climate, sloping mountainsides and oceanic winds provided a perfect terroir for quality wines, and many of these original estates remain today in all their grandeur and beauty, still producing the wines which made the country famous.
