We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Wine SpectatorThis compact red slowly opens to reveal dense, layered flavors of plum sauce, fig paste, game and iron. Fresh, with integrated tannins and a long, mocha- and spice-tinged finish. Decant or set down for the short term. CarmenÃÂ¨re and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2014. 1,742 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Neyen is a blend of 80% Carmenere and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for fourteen months in 70% new French oak. It is smooth and sensual on the nose thanks to that creamy oak, although it is in harmony with the voluptuous fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a dense, tobacco-tinged entry: layers of black fruit with a dry, grainy, graphite finish that is stern and serious. This is nicely composed and should accompany food with style. Personally, I would afford this wine another year in bottle. Drink 2013-2019.
