Review: 2007 Anka Pargua II Maipo Valley

From Chile’s Maipo Valley, Vina Pargua ‘s “Anka Pargua II” is built from an odd blend of 30% Cabernet Franc, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 11% Syrah, 6% Petit Verdot, and 2% Carmenere — all organic. The results are intriguing. Extremely dry at first blush, it opens up after a few minutes in the glass, so don’t count it out without a fight. Revealed are lush red berry fruit notes, some pepper (black and red), and a hint of floral character. While the finish remains bone dry, the wine is ultimately easy-drinking and very food-friendly. Good value, too.
