Concha Y Toro Merlot Frontera 2006
94 points Robert Parker: `The red wines start with the saturated purple 2006 Carmenere Peumo Vineyard Block 27. The nose offers up spice box mineral plum black cherry and blueberry. This is followed by a round mouth-filling plush wine with ripe underlying tannin complex spicy flavors excellent density and a long fruit-filled finish. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2012 to 2021.` 92 points Wine Spectator: `Dark in profile with plum and currant fruit but very pure with silky tannins and a long stylish finish that lets incense spice and mineral notes play out. Deftly done. Drink now through 2011.` 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: `Inky ruby. Suave aromas of black raspberry potpourri and licorice. A smoky note comes up with air and carries onto the palate which offers sweet red and black fruit flavors and fine-grained tannins. Sappy red fruits linger on the long nicely focused finish. This is complex enough to drink now but I'd hold off for at least another couple of yea

Lots of dark purple fruit flavors (berry and cherry), soft tannins, velvety mouthfeel. Fruity without being sweet.
complex aromas of crushed berries, cedar, mahogany and sweet tobacco. what a load of bullsh%t. you'll never be a rothschild no matter how much of their overpriced alcoholic grape juice u drink.

A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Le Petit Mouton 750ml
Gorgeous aromas of currant, raspberry and mineral. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins. Long and caressing, building on the palate. Very pretty, very elegant. Subtle and seductive. This could be better than 2005. Wait and see. J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Mouton-Rothschild 750ml
Intensive rubinrote Farbe. Nobles Bouquet von reifen, schwarzen Johannisbeeren, Pflaumen und delikaten Brombeeren. Mineralische- und feine Vanillenoten, Kaffee und etwas Orangenesenz. Ungemein delikate Frucht mit einer herausragenden Frucht-Säure-Balance, erstklassige Tanninstruktur, elegant und charaktervoll.
Dark in profile, with plum and currant fruit, but very pure, with silky tannins and a long, stylish finish that lets incense, spice and mineral notes play out. Drink now through 2011. 8,500 cases made. -JM The red wines start with the saturated purple 2006 Carmenere Peumo Vineyard Block 27. The nose offers up spice box, mineral, plum, black cherry, and blueberry. This is followed by a round, mouth-filling plush wine with ripe underlying tannin, complex, spicy flavors, excellent density, and a long, fruit-filled finish. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2012 to 2021. As in previous years, this wine delivers earthy, proprietary aromas and flavors on a structured frame. The palate has forward berry and plum flavors, while the feel is rich, only mildly tannic and 100% healthy. Never does it sag, and with adequate acidity it doesn't lack for purpose or a finish line. Drinkable now into 2011. - M.S. (includes 10% cabernet sauvignon, 3% cabernet franc and 2% merlot) Inky ruby. Suave aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and licorice. A smoky note comes up with air and carries onto the palate, which offers sweet red and black fruit flavors and fine-grained tannins. Sappy red fruits linger on the long, nicely focused finish. This is complex enough to drink now but I'd hold off for at least another couple of years. ** Only 14 in Stock **
