Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 92A little rubbery and tough on first sniff, but this pedigreed Chilean Cab settles with airing and soon shows exciting, fully ripe raspberry, cassis and blackberry flavors. The mouthfeel is perfectly cushioned yet intense, and the finish is ripe, smooth and composed. Ready to go now but should hold steady for another three years.Wine Tasting NotesDeep red. Black ripe fruits, concentrated, leather, hue, chocolate and graphite, all in a perfect balance. Dense and warm, firm tannins with a sweet after-taste, persistent chocolate and dried fruit flavors. An ideal accompaniment to lamb with spicy sauces, and full flavored cheeses.

Has an ample layer of sweet, mocha-infused toast, but plenty of plum and blackberry notes as well. The long, fleshy finish lets the fruit and mineral notes hang together nicely, with an encore of toast. Drink now through 2009. 55,200 cases made. R... Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from in Chile. 2005 Concha y Toro Merlot Marques de Casa Concha 750ml

Tiefes Rot. Pflaumen, Gewürzen mit Noten nach Schokolade und Vanille. Komplex, weich, samtig, angenehm mit einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.
