Concha Marques Syrah 2007
External Reviews for Concha Marques Syrah
Concha y Toro's Syrah offerings begin with the 2006 Syrah Marques de Casa Concha. Medium purple-colored, the nose exhibits plum, blueberry, and black cherry aromas leading to an uncomplicated but ripe and flavorful wine for drinking over the next several years.
Dense purple in color, with bold aromas of coconut, chocolate, mint and wild berries. Don'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.
Perfectly open and huge, with deep plum and black fruit smothering both the bouquet and palate. Over the past couple of years this wine has distinguished itself as a bruiser with charm. And while it may show very little in common with Rhône-style Syrah, for a Chilean version it rocks. Look for huge berry flavors and excellent balancing acids and tannins.
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.
Lovely blackberry, boysenberry and blueberry fruit, with ample toast, cocoa and mineral notes. Slightly firm, but has plenty of stuffing to handle it. Rich finish. This winery just keeps cranking out the hits. Drink now through 2006.
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.
The 2005 Syrah "Marques de Casa Concha" was aged for 16 months in French oak. It offers up smoke, leather, game, and blueberry scents which are followed by a supple-textured, ripe, layered wine with abundant spicy flavors. This nicely balanced wine will evolve for 3-5 years and drink well through 2027.
