213, The Wine Advocate
The 2011 Altair is a blend of majority Cabernet Sauvignon complemented with Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, from a vineyard in Alto Cachapoal at around 450 meters altitude, selected from different plots with different soils. It has a special brightness that I associate with Alto Cachapoal, a mixture of citric, red and black fruits, a spicy, smoky, meaty, pure and intense nose with a medium-bodied palate, vertical, with very fine, slightly grainy tannins and good balance and acidity. 10,000 cases produced. It’s drinkable now, but it’s better to wait a little. Drink 2015-2022. San Pedro is a very large winery producing commercial wines that are pleasant enough and a top line now being called Grandes Vinos that includes Altair (which used to be a separate winery). There is a new focus around these grandes vinos, and they are doing a lot of research and development at the Altair winery where they are produced, including a lot of work in the vineyards. I tasted some wines vinified by soil and they really reflected their origin. All this should be soon reflected in the quality of their bottled products.
