This is the original wine in the Antiyal lineup, a blend of 49% Carmenere, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Syrah. Spontaneous fermentation is followed by almost a month of maceration before being racked to concrete egg for aging and malolactic fermentation. After 12 months the wine is bottled and then kept in the cellar for six months. Big and bold, this wine has fantastic bright red fruit accompanied by some earthier tones of leather, pencil lead, and a note of musk. The mouthfeel, as with all of Alvaro's wines, is an extraordinary admixture of lush roundness and sprightly acidity. Drink until 2025. Andrew Farquhar
This 100% Carmenere from the same parcel as the regular Antiyal is one of the greatest of all Chilean wines from one of its greatest producers. Huge and powerful on the palate. With fine-grained tannin and electric acidity, this wine was built for the cellar. What sometimes comes across as greenness in Carmenere is sublimated into a gorgeous perfumed charred-meat, black pepper character. Fine dark fruit is elegantly presented on pillows of textural finesse. Aged in concrete egg for a year before bottling, and kept at the estate another six months. Drink now until 2035.

This Pais from the Maule valley south of Santiago is from a single vineyard planted over 200 years ago by the ancestors of the current winemaker Jose Luis Bastias. The grapes are pressed by hand over a "Zaranda," a traditional bamboo sieve, and then fermented in cement and aged in the family's old casks made from Rauli beech, a species native to Chile and the traditional method of aging. This wine has an incredible herbal nose. "Matorral" is the name for the main ecoregion in temperate Chile, a low, xeric shrubland of herbs and hardy bushes most of which are not found outside Chile. Thus, this wine has it's own, Chilean style of "garrigue", a sweet and sour, heady, intense, and pleasantly alien herbal character that comes from the native plants surrounding the vineyard. Wed to a dense dried plum character, this is a truly original style of wine from the of the oldest ungrafted vines in the world. Andrew Farquhar
