One of my favorite wines. Period. Delicious, smooth and spicy. Long lasting finish. Great price, too.
2010 Xmas gift from Travis
Stevige en volle smaak, veel rood fruit (bessen, framboos. Afdronk iets houtigs (eiken ?). Zou goed passen bij stoofschotels en rood vlees. Kan ook gecombineerd worden met gekruid eten. Associatie is vooral met de stevige Italiaanse vrienden zoals de Vino Nobile di Montepulciano maar dat is misschien iets te veel eer.
A nice wine for an nice but common dinner with some friends. Strong nice red color. Normal viscosity. I sensed nice blackberry, plum and some spicy kind of pepperish notes. Though intense not very complex to the nose. In mouth is dry, hot and with the right softness. I find it bodied but lacking some "hardness" like freshness and tannins.

A fleshy, toasty style, with coffee and vanilla notes backed by medium-weight plum fruit and a flash of loam. Drink now.
Ripe and polished, offering a dark core of plum and black currant flavors layered with warm fig sauce, loam and cocoa powder notes, with a solid, fleshy finish. Drink now through 2010.
Inky ruby. Ripe boysenberry, candied plum, mocha and incense on the nose. Supple dark berry flavors show impressive sweetness and concentration, becoming gently tannic with air. Broad but nicely focused on the finish, where the rich boysenberry quality echoes. Seductive and delicious already.
From the Peumo vineyards in Chile's Rapel Valley, this limited production Merlot has been barrel-aged in French oak for fourteen months. Its intense plum and cherry aromas and flavors evoke the Peumo terrior; the wood adds generous hints of chocolate and vanilla.
Surprisingly robust and concentrated for its price, this winersquo;s blackberry flavors are wrapped in dense tannins. For lamb chops.
Once upon a time this Concha y Toro label was a Best Buy regular. At $21 it no longer qualifies, but it's every bit an excellent wine in 2006. Aromas of plum, cola, pepper and Christmas spice are alluring, while the palate is saturated yet balanced. Flavors of plum and berry are perfectly ripe, and the structure and texture are just right.
A modestly structured version, with cocoa powder, currant paste, briar and tobacco notes backed by nice grip on the finish. What a value. Drink now through 2009.
"Deep red. Unctuous cherry, cassis, cedar, blackberry, black tar and smoke-led presence. Tight and focused with a deep concentration of flavours framed by firm tannins. A smooth, almost silky texture masks the firm tannic structure beneath, which really comes to the fore at the beginning of the long finish." --Winemaker's notes
