2009 Concha y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon - Syrah Castillero del Diablo Maipo Valley 14% $15

A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Syrah.

Intense and somewhat extracted smelling with deep black currant and jellied black fruit aromas topped with peppery hints of oak spice and tobacco. This enters the mouth with surprising softness, the lowish acidity lends volume to this on the palate but robs it of some of its liveliness. The flavors are deep and fairly intense with earth, tobacco and cocoa streaks running through the intense black currant fruit. The wood pops on the backend with nuanced caramel notes, adding further complexity on the moderately long and drying finish. A lot of wine but a bit heavy and clumsy for my palate. 86pts Find it Here

    Interesting how Washington represents here. They do very nice blends at great prices. I've become a big fan.

    Washington is doing some greet work these days, too bad many of the wines are not widely distributed.

    MrWinelover, there's a lot of great resources here on Snooth, and keep trying wines, it's the best way to learn!

  • You might want to try Bogle Phantom at $ 15.99 in Cherry Hill, NJ. It's a blend of Old vine zin, old vine mourvedre and petite syrah. Their petite S and Old vine zin are standalone winners around $ 8 and embarrassingly low priced for the quality delivered.

    Coppola Rosso is a blend that varies contents each year, they used to publish what is in it, but they no longer do. It is rather raw, but with 3 yrs of aging, it becomes a lovely Italianesque wine, but with more body.
