Deep ruby color. Wonderful blackcurrant, black cherry, and raspberry fruit and hints of mint. Chocolate notes, well integrated oak, velvety tannins, and medium acidity. Excellent length.

I'm quite impressed with this wine. It's juicy, succulent. Medium to full bodied. Slightly dry on the finish. It generally denotes a much more aged feel for a 2008. Your definitely getting you dollars worth here. It's sweet but not sweet, very well balanced. It reminds me of some much more expensive Napa Valley wines. Very smooth!

Stands out for its fruit quality, balance and structure. The nose is strong and piercing, with charred notes, black-fruit aromas and depth. Ripe and clean in the mouth, with elevated blackberry flavors and a chewy, meaty mouthfeel. Toasty and tasting of black licorice on the finish. A serious, well-made Chilean Cab to drink now through 2012.

Elegant, with cassis, black cherry and currant fruit, subtle vanilla and toast shadings and slightly firm but fine tannins. Not a powerhouse, but a balanced effort in a lighter vintage. Drink now through 2005.

This sensational value has a range of flavors; structure and other important characteristics that some wines costing five times more can't match. The nose is full of plum, black fruit and coffee, while the palate is pure dynamite; it's a textbook modern Cabernet that hits the target squarely in the center.

Rock-solid, with dark currant, fig and blackberry fruit flavors supported by briar, licorice snap and coffee notes. The long, muscular finish should soften with moderate cellaring. Drink now through 2012.

Inky ruby. A complex bouquet displays red - and blackcurrant, dark cherry, tobacco and incense. Fleshy, finely etched red and dark berry flavors stain the palate and are firmed by juicy acidity. Becomes sweeter with air, finishing with excellent clarity and lingering sweetness. This will reward patience.

Very solid beam of raspberry and black currant fruit here, caressed by sweet toast, cocoa and smoke notes. Hints of loam and tar on the finish, which is juicy and ripe. Delicious and should age nicely in the short-term as well. Drink now through 2005.

Inky purple. Extremely fruity nose offers an explosive bouquet of blackberry, plum jam, licorice and mocha. Round, sweet and supple, with deep dark berry liqueur flavors and slow-building tannins. Turns a bit drier on the finish, where the tannins give the wine a slightly clenched impression

Winemaker's Notes:

A bouquet of fine black currants and black plums with hints of toasty French oak. Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding dark ruby red wine. The wine is aged for 18 months in one-, two- and three-year-old French oak barrels, and then aged a further 2 months after bottling. It is an appetizing, smooth, well-rounded and tasteful wine. It is well-balanced with a long finish. Enjoy this fine Cabernet Sauvignon with red meats, cheeses and pasta.
