medium bodied,not much fruit,a little spicy
Amazing bang for the buck. Successful capture of carmenere's complexity.
I was very surprised to drink a wine of this quality from Chile! The tannins were big but smooth. Hints of lead pencil and lots of dark fruit. This wine will last a very long time. It was a gift and I had never heard of it. Wow. I sure won't forget it.
Strong red wine, not to buy again
a tickly wine. great with thai food! wonderful with chocolate and good with everything else. it's a cheap thrill, really. not complicated, but simply delicious, perhaps a bit too callow for some.
spicy and full

Pretty plum and cassis fruit, with lush tannins and a round, smoky finish that lets the fruit linger nicely. Drink now.
Concha y Toro is getting Carmenere right. This affordable red is full bodied, with a fair amount of oak and bacon smothering plum and berry aromas. On the whole itrsquo;s round, juicy and fresh, with lively flavors and good feel.
The dense ruby/purple-hued fresh vivacious 2004 Mouton-Rothschild offers hints of new saddle leather truffles cassis and pain grille zesty acidity a touch of austerity and a medium-bodied streamlined restrained personality. This rich pure claret will require patience as it needs a decade of cellaring to shed its lofty tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2045. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
The robe is rich black prune in the center and garnet-vermilion towards the edge. Delicate aromas of forest strawberries, raspberries, cocoa and wildflowers with overtones of honey and incense characterize the subtle nose. The very precise attack is fresh. The evolution is pure and creamy with persistent and enrobed tannins. Flavors of peach pips, almonds and smoky mesquite blend together with vanilla and bright, fresh red and black fruit aromas throughout the exceptionally elegant finish. A remarkably graceful and pure wine.
Beautiful aromas of crushed berries and chocolate with hints of Indian spices. Full-bodied with silky velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. A lovely wine for the vintage. This is the first wine from the new winemaking team at Mouton and is showing really well. Best after 2011. 23 000 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.
Good full ruby-red. Expressive aromas of currant coffee dark chocolate tobacco mocha and smoked meat. Juicy spicy and classically dry rather tight and backward for 2004 and not a particularly fleshy style even if it s nicely sweetened by nutty oak. But this boasts excellent precision and verve and the aromatic finishing flavors build slowly and steadily. Firm acids and tannins give this plenty of backbone for development in bottle. With extended aeration the texture became silkier. Stephe
