140, The Wine Advocate

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Almaviva, a joint venture of the Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Vina Concha y Toro, has a Margaux like red currant, blackberry, and violet scented nose. While its fruit remains youthfully reticent in the mid-palate, this wine's attack and finish reveals loads of red cherries, raspberries (both red and black), currants, and cassis liqueur. It is a well-structured, full-flavored, and mouth-coating wine armed with admirable concentration. Its tannin is exquisitely ripe, supple, and angle-free. As this wine ages, its middle should fill out to reveal the density of fruit evident in its attack and finish. When this occurs it may well merit an even loftier score. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015.
