About Our Ratings

Haras De Pirque 2006 Albis, Red Blend, Maipo Valley
Haras de Pirque is Marchesi Antinori's estate in Chile. In Pirque, Chile in the foothills of the Andes, 290 acres of vineyards were planted in 1992 and since then the winery has turned out fine boutique quality wines named for their famous racehorses. Of course the globe-trotting Antinori family winemaking team led by Renzo Cotarella is in charge. This wine is their flagship blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Carménère. Fermentation and maceration were in French oak vats for a total of 20 days, then the wine was blended and racked again into new French barrels for 18 months in total. Additional bottle age have brought out delightful complexities and softened the texture to a silky smoothness. It has a 92 point score on Cellar Tracker and it scored 92 points in the Wine Advocate. They said "The 2006 Albis is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with one fourth of Carmenere from organic vineyards produced jointly with the Antinori team. It feels quite classical, with notes of roasted coffee, smoke, cured meat, and black fruit. It has enough power to age in bottle and go well with meat stews and similar powerful dishes. 2006 was a cool vintage in Pirque, where the grapes are grown, and the grapes were harvested later than average. This is a little foursquare, still unevolved. Drink now-2020."
