Considered one of the best vintages of Concha y Toro’s top Cabernet Sauvignon - with tiny amounts of Cabernet Franc (5%), Merlot (3%) and Petit Verdot (1%). From 100+ years old vines in the Puente Alto appellation in the Maipo valley (reputed region for Bordeaux varieties). Elegant, refined nose with aromas of dark fruit, prunes, leather and hints of mint. Silky tannins and flavors of marinated cherry and chocolate. Complex. Long finish. Excellent wine — 12 days ago
Along with cassis, fresh herbs, mocha, and eucalyptus, I really like the fresh red fruit notes here: raspberry, cranberry, and perhaps pomegranate? The supple palate offers more ripe dark fruit profiles. Juicy acidity and ripe tannins.
This will age nicely for another 5 years. — 20 days ago
Outstanding after an hour or more in the glass. Silky smooth all the way through the finish. Blueberry and blackberry dark fruit, layered with a touch of dark chocolate and a lighter layer of licorice. Extremely well balanced to drink now, and can probably sleep for another year or two, but I would not push it. — 23 days ago
Dark red color, has plums, wood, lots of body. A bit sweet aftertaste very smooth. Bought mail order from the vineyard. Maipo valley. Recommended. — 2 days ago
At a Turkish restaurant in Tulum. Bought this wine at a local supermarket and brought into the restaurant. Needed time to open up but we consumed most of the bottle before letting it open up. — 14 days ago
N: Manure, loam, spicy dark fruits ( the wife says no manure) definitely earthy and dirty, crushed blackberries, smells like a few cahors I’ve had.deep and dank.
P: Raisiny but not cloying, tart yet controlled, tannins quite resolved.
Very round on the palate. Delicious.
14° Easy to quaff.
This is no monster, consensus is it would work w poultry, some fish. We had beef stew.
For what it’s worth @Decanter gave this a 98. — 11 days ago
