My Rating 84: This wine has no off notes, is well balanced fruity not much complexity. Nose is fruity well balanced. An everyday wine that i would offer to guest that do not know to much about wine. They will be very happy!!!!
My Rating 84. Pleasant everyday jug wine . Nothing realy wrong, pleasant nose with fruity tones. Full Body with plenty of fruit. pleasant to drink to barbeque. Slightly chilled evebn better.
A nice wine for an nice but common dinner with some friends. Strong nice red color. Normal viscosity. I sensed nice blackberry, plum and some spicy kind of pepperish notes. Though intense not very complex to the nose. In mouth is dry, hot and with the right softness. I find it bodied but lacking some "hardness" like freshness and tannins.
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Carménère Colchagua Valley Frontera
It may have been abandoned in its Bordeaux home, but Carmenère has found a home and a new life in Chile. It makes red wines with good juicy fruit, freshness, flavors of ripe plums. This example, blended with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah, is a great wine just to drink, full of fruit, with a touch of toast, vanilla and smooth tannins.
