Almaviva 2018

RRP £103

Surprisingly high in alcohol for a 2018 release, but this iconic, pan-regional cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon with 28% Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot shows the balance and harmony that are the hallmarks of an outstanding harvest. Dense yet refreshing, with cassis and blueberry fruit, a grassy, herbal top note, savoury tannins, scented oak and wonderful focus.
