The second wine in a Bordeaux sense, the 2014 Alba de Domus is from a younger part of the vineyard (30 years old), built with a reference to Domus. It's more of a barrel selection, with higher percentages of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot—accounting for up to 40% of the blend—to complement the 60% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a lot less of the minty and eucalyptus character that I consistently find in Domus, and it's more fruit-driven. In 2014, the wine has good ripeness without any excess, a soft mouthfeel with round tannins and a finish that is dominated by fruit and spice flavors, with the oak very nicely integrated. 2014 could be the modern version of 2010 or 2007. Some 30,000 bottles were filled in January 2016.
2014 has to be one of the finest vintages at Quebrada de Macul, with wines that remind me of the 2010 vintage. 2015 was another warm and dry year, 2016 was cooler, lighter and had some challenges, and 2017 was warm again, with low yields but without reaching the same level as other years. And 2018 could be another dream year in the making. For now, the 2014s here are superb, textbook examples of Maipo and more specifically Macul.
