Wine Spectator 92 points - Redolent of dried currant and sandalwood, this is a vibrant, gutsy red, featuring of deep vein of cocoa powder. Exhibits an elegant texture, with a finish that lingers with fig and olive notes. Drink now through 2019. 2,500 cases made.-KM  (Nov 30 2014)

Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2010 Neyen shows more purity on the nose compared to the 2009, with blackberry, blueberry, flinty notes and a touch of smoke. It has fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins over a dense core of earthy, tobacco-infused black fruit. The finish shows more delineation and refinement than the 2009. There is a satisfying, sophisticated touch to this 2010. Drink 2014-2022. (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.
