A classic Chilean Cab expressing some vegetal aromas (asparagus, spiced green pepper) alongside some ripe plum notes . The ruby color is enticing while the palette exudes a stemmy character. Overall, a good value and versatile wine.

Pleasantly fragrant with violets and blueberries. More tart berry flavor on the palate with spicy finish. This would be a great value wine for big gatherings with cheese and snacks.

The intital attack was sharp on the tip of my toungue.. then it just fell off a cliff! It was an empty roller coaster ride. Even after some time... it opened up like a tiny blossom. Acid is medium... maybe it'd taste better with food.... not a bottle of enjoying solo. From the other reveiws... perhaps your pallete will have better luck! :)

100% Cabernet Sauvignon .Dark, rub-red color. Plum and cherry notes with a touch of vanilla. On the palate, the wine is concentrated and soft, with rich flavors of cherry and toasty oak. Xplorador C

Lightly firm and toasty, with good raspberry and black cherry fruit laced with a grilled herb note.

Opens with briar, raspberry and a spot of char. The palate is basic, simple in feel, maybe a touch curt, but overall the wine is fresh and tastes of plum and herbal berry fruit. It's slightly dry and leafy, but it's bright and fresh in the mouth, with good balance.

Juicy flavors of ripe Morello cherries float on the silky texture of this cabernet. It's light enough to drink chilled with grilled salmon.

Medium-bodied, with typical Maipo notes of mint, loam and red currant. Coffee-tinged finish, with supple tannins. Honest to its origins. Nicely done. Drink now through 2004.

Dark, ruby-red. Plum and cherry notes with a touch of vanilla. Concentrated and soft, with rich flavors of cherry and toasty oak.

Ripe and ready, with powerful dark fruit. This is a fine "starter" Cab from Chile and Concha y Toro, one that will impress novices and satisfy the high end drinker as well. The palate is lightly sugary, but the black fruit is ripe and tasty. And the tannins are there, as they should be, although they're not overwhelming.
