Concha Y Toro Carménère Colchagua Valley Frontera 2011
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Carménère Colchagua Valley Frontera
Shows good concentration to the ripe red fruit flavors, with notes of iron and graphite, lingering on the tannic finish. Drink now.
Powerful in its scale and ambition, this syrah shows the influence of the Andes in its rich in herbal notes and ripe red fruit. An opulent wine for a steak.
Deep ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berries on the spice-accented nose. Sappy and precise, displaying good lift and cut to its bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors. The spiciness comes back on the finish, which shows good energy and subtle tannic grip. Buin is a subzone of the Maipo Valley.
I enjoyed the 2011 Marques de Casa Concha Syrah Buin from the Buin appellation within Maipo, which aged in Burgundian French oak barrels (around 30% new). It has a nose of black and blue fruit, with hints of smoke. It’s a generous wine, with a medium-bodied palate and some chunky tannin from the barriques, ending with a note of dark chocolate. Drink 2015–2018.
