Concha Y Toro Carmenere Marques de Casa Concha 2013
Fruity character, with aromas of cherries and a slight touch of cacao: elegant rounded and with a good body. It is the perfect match for pasta, cheese, red meat and grilled chicken. Color: Bright and vivid dark ruby red. Nose: Cherries and pepper aromas with a slight touch of cacao. Palette: Elegant, round and full-bodied wine, with a long lasting aftertaste.
This wine is our favorite..Our only local store that we can find it at,"Martin's" has been steadily raising it's cost in just the last month. At start, both the Frontera Cabernet and the Merlot started at $8.99. We prefer the purple label Merlot, and bought it often. It went straight to $14.99, then the Cabernet at $8.99, went to $10.99, then the next day it was raised to $14.99, as well...We feel outraged by the greed shown by this store, not by the wine company. I hope to find another store carrying our favorite soon, in our area I hope.
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Carmenere Marques de Casa Concha
A delicate fruity style of the second wine of Mouton. Medium to light body. Light roasted fruit and spice. Fresh finish. 93% cabernet sauvignon and 7% merlot. James Suckling.
The Grand Vin is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc the latter close to exceptional according to Philippe Dhalluin. It has less new oak (85%) because the new wooden vats impart their own raw woody character. It has a well-defined classic bouquet that you might describe as "no frills". It does not have the usual Mouton flamboyance although that is not necessarily a bad thing. The palate is well balanced with clean and mineral-rich black fruit and a pleasant salty
Very aromatic and fresh with floral currant and cherry. Full to medium body with fine tannins and a bright fruity finish. I like the way it builds on the palate at the end. Salty too. 89% cabernet sauvignon 7% merlot and 4% cabernet franc. James Suckling.
The Le Petit Mouton has a huge majority of Cabernet Sauvignon at 93% - the highest percentage ever. The nose is quite floral and Margaux-like in style simple but perfumed. The palate is crisp and structured on the entry with plenty of graphite-infused black fruit originating from the Cabernet with a touch of dried blood towards the finish. This is a knockout wine from Philippe Dhalluin - real character and panache here. Tasted April 2014. Neal Martins Wine Journal.
