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!

Concentrated, with a solid core of black currant, fig and hoisin sauce notes, all layered with alluring bittersweet cocoa, espresso and roasted vanilla, followed by a long, fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2010.

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

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.

Lush but structured, delivering layers of black currant, tobacco, loam and dark licorice pushed by ripe, solid structure, with a long, dark finish. Always rock-solid. Drink now through 2011.

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.

Rock-solid, with nicely integrated structure that allows the core of loam, blackberry, fig sauce and raspberry to stretch out. Shows lingering mint and coccoa notes on the plus, fleshy finish. Drink now through 2011.

Stands out for its fruit quality, balance and structure. The nose is strong and piercing, with charred notes, black-fruit aromas and depth. Ripe and clean in the mouth, with elevated blackberry flavors and a chewy, meaty mouthfeel. Toasty and tasting of black licorice on the finish. A serious, well-made Chilean Cab to drink now through 2012.
