Wine Spectator 92 points - The core of blackberry, black Mission fig and mulled currant fruit is ripe and rich, but restrained, while maduro tobacco, loam and dark olive notes weave around the edges. The long, grippy finish is well-integrated. Offers a nice combination of purity and power. Equal parts Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2013. 2,080 cases made.-JM  (May 31 2010)

Vinous 92 points - (a 50/50 blend of cabernet sauvignon and carmenere) Opaque ruby. Exotic scents of black raspberry, cherry, fruitcake, peppery spices and violet; smells almost syrah-like. Lush, sappy dark fruit flavors display liqueur-like depth but are light on their feet, with tangy minerality adding lift and cut. An impressively rich but suave blend with excellent finishing clarity and lingering spiciness.  (Mar 2010)

Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2006 Neyen is an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere raised in 70% new French oak for twelve to fourteen months. It has a fresh, elegant bouquet with dark plum and black cherries that combine well with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly astringent tannins. It seems to lack a little flesh and elegance towards the finish, which is a little disappointing after such an attractive bouquet. Drink now-2015. (Dec 2012)

Wine maker notes
We seek to bring out the full potential of the ancient vines at Neyen. The history, intensity and complexity of their fruit are woven into an elegant, balanced and textural blend of our winery’s emblematic varieties: Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon. Carmenere, the principal component of the blend, is complemented by the potency of Cabernet Sauvignon; together they allow us to capture the “Spirit of Apalta” in every bottle we make and to offer the finest wine possible.

The Neyen winery was founded in 2002 on the site of one of Apalta’s first wineries, built in 1890. Nestled into a horseshoe-shaped ring of mountains, Neyen produces a treasured red wine reflective of the famed terroir bathed by the Tinguiririca River, blessed by the sun, and sheltered by the Coastal Mountain Range. The Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon vines -from pre -phylloxera cuttings imported from Bordeaux - have produced high quality fruit since their first harvest in the early 1890s. For decades, the rich fruit supplied Chile’s top producers. By 2002, Apalta had become known around the world as a source of prestigious wine. The Rojas family, who purchased the property in 1973, knew that the 3,300 acre property they had owned for more than 30 years is uniquely special and created Neyen to showcase this remarkable vineyard. In 2012, they partnered with the Huneeus family, proprietors of Quintessa in Napa Valley, to bring this hidden gem to the US. The desire to make a single, truly great wine led the family to develop a unique blend that would best represent the virtues of this valley. Neyen, meaning “spirit” in the native tongue, had to reflect the centuries of existence and the soul of the Apalta terroir.
