Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, with 24 percent of the distinctive red grape Carmenère in the mix, the 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of this perennial top-scorer. The 150-acre Puente Alto estate lies just south of Chile’s capital of Santiago and is filled with gravels and clays washed down from the towering Andes, which rise to the east; the Carmenère is sourced from the famed Peumo vineyard in the Cachapoal Valley farther south. Winemaker Michel Friou aged the wine 16 months in new French oak. 95 Spectator #10 Top 100 2019
