Concha Marques Syrah 2007
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Nose featuring cassis and cherry syrup, dry red cherries with very firm tannins on the palate (had just a taste at a tasting)
Came on strong up front, but ultimately failed to deliver on the specific balance of flavors, for me.
totally enjoyed using the decanter this afternoon. The wine I had today, Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 http://www.snooth.com/wine/marques-de-ca... And what I did was sipped a little then slow slurped for about 4 seconds. Wow! What a difference. For $16 give it a try.
Great $15 Costco price, but a green nose that I just do not appreciate in Chilean wines. Taste fads away quickly. The problem is me, not the hords of people who appreciate Chilean wines.
I accidently bought this instead of their carm and was somewhat disappointed (because I quite like the carm) but enjoyed it anyways.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Concha Marques Syrah
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.
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.
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.
A lush, ripe and potently structured syrah, this Marquandeacute;s offers a seductive combination of tart red and black fruit. The flavors are backed by firm acidity, suggesting it will evolve well over the next several years. Or decant it now for grilled sausages.
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.
