Editorial Reviews for Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon
This is tight on the nose with aromatic French oak and a small core of rather precise, lightly candied black currant/blackberry fruit peeking out. A touch soft in the mouth, this nonetheless is well-balanced with a nice combination of weight and intensity. Like the nose, one gets an impression of a wine not giving up its all but what is here is very attractive: red and black currant fruit, a nice streak of earth, a hint of caramel from the oak, all leading to a lovely finish that is moderately long and fruit-driven (though not fruity), with the oak lurking until the finale, where it adds some peppery spice. 91pts
Lots of sweet fruit and spicy oak greets the nose along with notes of candied herbs, dried tomato and black currant fruit. Supple yet bright, this shows a lovely, lively character in the mouth with a blend of red and black berry fruit wrapped around subtle herb and clear baking spice flavors. There's a hint of creaminess to the texture, and a touch of sweetness from oak but this remains refined with good power and lovely balance. The finish is moderately long with a nice blue plum and spice note. Very complete wine. 90pts

This wine is our favorite..Our only local store that we can find it at,"Martin's" has been steadily raising it's cost in just the last month. At start, both the Frontera Cabernet and the Merlot started at $8.99. We prefer the purple label Merlot, and bought it often. It went straight to $14.99, then the Cabernet at $8.99, went to $10.99, then the next day it was raised to $14.99, as well...We feel outraged by the greed shown by this store, not by the wine company. I hope to find another store carrying our favorite soon, in our area I hope.
Three and a half glasses
Fruity wine. A little dry at the finish. Very easy to drink, went well with roasted pork and beef.
This wine was described as a vinho verde, which it is NOT. It is very inexpensive and delicious. The server was kind enough to write down the name of the bottle -- very good with fish and excellent alone.
We got blackberry and plum on the nose with tobacco and a hint of light roast coffee. The mouthfeel was particularly smooth and round. On the palate, cinnamon candies, black cherry, plum, and caramel were detected. The finish was smooth as well, lingering with the taste of berry cola. There was little acidity and soft tannins overall.
Dark berries and spicy. A hot and tannic.
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon
A delicate fruity style of the second wine of Mouton. Medium to light body. Light roasted fruit and spice. Fresh finish. 93% cabernet sauvignon and 7% merlot. James Suckling.
The Grand Vin is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc the latter close to exceptional according to Philippe Dhalluin. It has less new oak (85%) because the new wooden vats impart their own raw woody character. It has a well-defined classic bouquet that you might describe as "no frills". It does not have the usual Mouton flamboyance although that is not necessarily a bad thing. The palate is well balanced with clean and mineral-rich black fruit and a pleasant salty
Very aromatic and fresh with floral currant and cherry. Full to medium body with fine tannins and a bright fruity finish. I like the way it builds on the palate at the end. Salty too. 89% cabernet sauvignon 7% merlot and 4% cabernet franc. James Suckling.
The Le Petit Mouton has a huge majority of Cabernet Sauvignon at 93% - the highest percentage ever. The nose is quite floral and Margaux-like in style simple but perfumed. The palate is crisp and structured on the entry with plenty of graphite-infused black fruit originating from the Cabernet with a touch of dried blood towards the finish. This is a knockout wine from Philippe Dhalluin - real character and panache here. Tasted April 2014. Neal Martins Wine Journal.
Ruby-like, bright in color. Fruit forward with red plum and varietal characteristics. Medium dry, medium body and harmonious with a good finish This wine marries two of the classic Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon offers character, complexity and longevity, while Merlot adds softer tannins and elegance, patterned after the same classic blend that distinguishes many fine chateaux of Bordeaux.
90% cabernet sauvignon, 7% merlot, and 3% cabernet franc. 75 hectare estate sits on a 40m-high mound. Soils are gravelly over a base of sand, clay, marl, and limestone. The 2011 Mouton harvest began September 12th and was completed on September 28th... John Sweeney. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Mouton-Rothschild 6000ml
A supple red, with charming cherry and plum perfume notes. Theres good focus to the cassis and blackberry fruit, which is backed by a stylish finish. Tasted non-blind.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Le Petit Mouton 750ml
