Antiyal Kuyen 2015
|Region||Chile, Maipo Valley|
Kuyen's grapes are organically grown, which Espinoza believes gives his fruit a superior expression of terroir. The Kuyen blend is aged for one year in French oak barrels, then bottled and aged an additional six months in the cellar prior to release.
Blend: 57% Syrah, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Carmenere, 2% Petit Verdot
This Syrah-dominated blend's ripe, roasted black fruit aromas bring root beer to mind. That ripeness echos on the palate, with exotic berry and chocolaty plum flavors. It tastes herbal and minty on the thick, oaky finish. Drink through 2025.
