2013 Alcance Bravura Bodeaux Blend

Varietal:  -
Region:  Maule Valley, Chile
Winery:  Alcance

Background

When we came to Chile in the early 1990s most of the country’s wineries were congregated to the north in the warmer areas of the Central Valley. We chose a different direction. With our extensive winemaking history in the cooler regions of California, and a belief that “cusp” climates produce the most complex and balanced wines, we looked to the Maule Valley. The last two decades have taught us that Maule is a place of unlimited potential. With modern planting, farming and winemaking techniques, Maule can produce wines that deliver all the depth, character and complexity of many of the world’s finest. Alcance is built around estate vineyards planted over dozens of soil types in various climatic regions. We produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenère, VIGNO (old-vine Carignan) and Bravura, our flagship Bordeaux blend, all of which reflect our unique terroir and sense of place.

Tasting Notes

Bravura represents our commitment to producing world-class wines with local character. The 2013 vintage is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard 900 meters above sea level – a unique location for the production of wines with superb aging potential. The elegant, austere nose, with delicate hints of dry nuts and oak, segues beautifully to the palate. The rich tannins lend an extraordinary structure to the wine, whose bold flavors sing through to the long, lingering finish.

Reviews

92 points, Michael Schachner (Wine Enthusiast Magazine):
"On the nose, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Petit Verdot smells of spicy berry fruits and black plum along with chocolate and cedar. The palate is a touch drawing and tannic, but in no way harsh or impeding. Spicy black-fruit flavors include notes of olive and herbs, while the finish delivers more of the same. Drink through 2022. "
