Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Marqués de Casa Concha 2006
Appellation Central Valley. Vintage 2006. Soil Riverbench, benchland and hillside associated soils. Aging 70% aged in small American oak barrels during 8 months. Colour Deep and intense red ruby. Nose Blackcurrant, black cherry and black plums notes; vanilla, mocha, toasted coffee and chocolate nuances from barrel aging. Taste It is a smooth yet intense concentrated wine, dense, vibrant. Elegant, long and pleasant lingering. Accompanies A great choice to match with red meats, herby dishes or mature cheeses such as Gruyere or blue cheese.
Smooth wine to drink on own, or with a hearty pasta dish. Easy Cabernet Sauvignon to drink.
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.
beautiful cab, ripe, full body. gorgeous nose, ruby color. perfect paired with marbled rib-eye. as good as any $30 Napa Cab
smooth and great wine just on its own. Served with Green Lettuce Indian Chinese food probably not the best match with the food - likely better with a pasta dish.
Definitely one of my favorite table wines, let alone cabernets. Found at Sam's Club for only $8! May be my next case purchase!
Deep and rich, with hints of oak, fig, coffee, spice with a clean lasting finish. Will definately buy more of this; everyone who tasted this during a multi-bottle dinner thoroughly enjoyed this Chilian cab...
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Marqués de Casa Concha
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.
Auge: leuchtendes Dunkelrot; Nase: Aromen nach reifen Kirschen, Johannisbeere, Pflaume, Note nach Vanille und Röstaromen nach amerikanischer Eiche; Gaumen: im Mund konzentriert, lebendig und weit. Elegant und lang anhaltend
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.
