An unusual cab with wild, unbalanced aromas and flavors. Crushed field weeds and thistles open an earthy, pungent nose that also houses subtle notes of dark fruit, including cassis and plum. Palate launches with a complex array of black fruits, including currant, plum and stewed prunes, framed by a sour, tangy acidity infused with notes of thistle, wild weeds, and burnt oak.

Had two bottles of this and was on a roll. Very good wine. Heavy dark fruits that sat on your palate nicely. Was big in the mouth but was not overbearing. Was a bit more tannic compared with its acidity. I will agree however with the previous reveiw that it matches any $30.00 cab out there.

    Never had this varietal before. Interesting nose of green pepper, mushroom, with a little fruit showing through. Once it had been open for awhile, the vegetal flavors faded and more berry fruits were apparent. Nice drinking wine, and at $9, great QPR! Excellent - 86 points.

    This wine has an attractive red color with violet reflections, and a pleasant blend of fruit and spice aromas. Full in the mouth, with sweet tannins and a persistent finish. A delightful accompaniment to red meats and spicy dishes.

    Ripe and pure, with lovely violet, blackberry and plum aromas and flavors that glide along sweet, imbedded tannins. Has a healthy layer of flashy toast, but more than enough fruit for balance. Concha y Toro makes it seem too easy. Drink now through 2008.

    Dense purple in color, with bold aromas of coconut, chocolate, mint and wild berries. Donrsquo;t expect an overly fat Syrah. The wine has body, extract, chewy berry fruit and tannin, but it also has bouncy acidity that almost tilts it toward choppy. With food, however, it will more than do the trick.

    Direct in its ripe red fruit and full of flavors of strawberries and cherry jam, this is meaty and expansive, all trademarks of the warm Peumo Hillsides of the Cachapoal Valley.

    Focused, with good dark coffee, black cherry and dark licorice notes followed by a loamy hint. The finish is dark, juicy and driven. Drink now through 2009.

    The purple-colored 2007 Syrah Marques de Casa Concha delivers notes of cedar, tobacco, espresso, smoke, and blueberry. Firm and structured on the palate, pepper and mineral elements make an appearance along with a hint of black licorice. This solid effort will drink well from 2011 to 2019.

    Glass-staining ruby. Powerful aromas of red and dark berries, incense and fresh rose. Fleshy, gently sweet black raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors stain the palate and become firmer with air, gaining a zesty anise quality. Finishes with a strong echo of dark berries and persistent spiciness. I'd resist the temptation to open this for another few years.
