Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Marqués de Casa Concha 2009
"Deep red. Unctuous cherry, cassis, cedar, blackberry, black tar and smoke-led presence. Tight and focused with a deep concentration of flavours framed by firm tannins. A smooth, almost silky texture masks the firm tannic structure beneath, which really comes to the fore at the beginning of the long finish." --Winemaker's notes
Me encantó, bien balanceado y cremosito. Y lo conseguí en Costco!

External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Marqués de Casa Concha
A light eucalyptus note leads to a jammy palate of kirsch, cassis and blackberry liqueur flavors, which cruise through the long finish of mesquite, licorice and dark spice hints. Drink now through 2014.
Pure, ripe and berry-scented, this has none of the menthol aromas usually associated with cabernet from Puente Alto. Instead, itandrsquo;s big and sweet, soft and creamy, with a black pepper kick to the tannins.
Rich and stylish on one hand, and brawny and bold on the other. This saturated, meaty bruiser starts with dark plum, cassis and eucalyptus aromas. Then comes a parade of chewy, high-powered fruit flavors: currant, cherry and blackberry. Casual back notes of chocolate and caramel cement this generous offering.
Saturated ruby. Red- and blackcurrant and floral oils on the pungent, spice-accented nose. Juicy, deeply pitched red berry and bitter cherry flavors display a suave blend of density and vivacity and pick up spice and licorice qualities with air. Finishes with mounting tannins and impressive focus. I suspect that this wine will age slowly and gracefully. ** SOLD OUT **
A big and bursting combination of healthy black fruit and copious French oak is manifested in the nose as bitter chocolate and plum pie. The palate is lively and full-bodied, with mature fruit flavors and velvety tannins, while plenty more of that bitter chocolate echoes across the finish.
Pure, ripe and berry-scented, this has none of the menthol aromas usually associated with cabernet from Puente Alto. Instead, itrsquo;s big and sweet, soft and creamy, with a black pepper kick to the tannins.
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.
