External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Carménère Xplorador
Ruby-red. Smoky cherry, coffee and dark chocolate aromas are brightened by a subtle floral note. Jammy dark berry flavors are complemented by mocha and licorice and betray no rough edges or tannins. Finishes with decent length and an echo of cocoa. This is an outstanding value.
Textbook Carmenère, with dark but soft plum and blackberry fruit laced with tobacco and sage notes. Stays fleshy on the smoky finish.
Bright ruby. Spicy aromas of red berries, cherry and cracked pepper, with a hint of herbs. Light-bodied, slightly sweet red and dark berry flavors are a bit clenched but refreshingly brisk and focused. Finishes with good clarity and cut, repeating the sweet red fruit note. This is a superb value.
