Viña Almaviva:
In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.

Deep ruby color. Wonderful blackcurrant, black cherry, and raspberry fruit and hints of mint. Chocolate notes, well integrated oak, velvety tannins, and medium acidity. Excellent length.

I'm quite impressed with this wine. It's juicy, succulent. Medium to full bodied. Slightly dry on the finish. It generally denotes a much more aged feel for a 2008. Your definitely getting you dollars worth here. It's sweet but not sweet, very well balanced. It reminds me of some much more expensive Napa Valley wines. Very smooth!

Rock-solid, with dark currant, fig and blackberry fruit flavors supported by briar, licorice snap and coffee notes. The long, muscular finish should soften with moderate cellaring. Drink now through 2012.

This sensational value has a range of flavors; structure and other important characteristics that some wines costing five times more can't match. The nose is full of plum, black fruit and coffee, while the palate is pure dynamite; it's a textbook modern Cabernet that hits the target squarely in the center.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Marques de Casa Concha spent 14 months in French oak. Alluring aromas of cedar, lavender, blackcurrant and blackberry are followed by a plush, layered, succulent wine with gobs of black fruit, ripe tannin, and 2-3 years of aging potential. It is a great value.

Broad-shouldered, with loam, sage, tobacco and currant flavors backed by a solid tannin structure. Dark and fleshy on the finish. Drink now through 2009.

Chilean wine giant Concha y Toro produces several different brands; one of the most consistent values is the Marqués de Casa Concha series. This fresh and focused wine is 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 18 months in 35 percent new oak barriques from France. It shows ripe varietal flavors of cassis, blackberry and boysenberry, accented by vanilla, mineral and cocoa notes.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon "Marques de Casa Concha" puts out classic toasty black currant aromas and flavors. This full-bodied wine has plenty of ripe fruit and well-integrated oak, tannin, and acidity. It has 2-3 years of aging potential and should drink well through 2025.

Inky purple. Extremely fruity nose offers an explosive bouquet of blackberry, plum jam, licorice and mocha. Round, sweet and supple, with deep dark berry liqueur flavors and slow-building tannins. Turns a bit drier on the finish, where the tannins give the wine a slightly clenched impression
