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

The 2006 Almaviva continues a series of successful vintages for this Chilean icon. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits an expressive bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, blackcurrant, and blackberry. Elegantly styled and impeccably balanced, it will evolve... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from in Chile. 2006 Almaviva 750ml
Half-Bottle, 375ml The wine of the vintage according to Robert Parker. Scoring it 98+ points he has deemed the 2006 Mouton Rothschild their best wine since 1986. "A sensational effort, the 2006 Mouton Rothschild exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a classic Mouton perfume of creme de cassis, flowers, blueberries, and only a hint of oak. Dalhuin told me that in whisky barrel-tasting vintages such as 1989 and 1990, Mouton was aged in heavily-toasted barrels, and they have backed off to a much lighter toast for the barrels’ interior. I think this has worked fabulously well with the cassis quality fruit they get from their Cabernet Sauvignon. The full-bodied, powerful 2006 possesses extraordinary purity and clarity. A large-scaled, massive Mouton Rothschild that ranks as one of the top four or five wines of the vintage, it may turn out to be the longest-lived wine of the vintage by a landslide. The label will undoubtedly be controversial as a relative of Sigmund Freud, Lucian Freud, has painted a rather comical Zebra staring aimlessly at what appears to be a palm tree in the middle of a stark courtyard. I suppose a psychiatrist could figure out the relationship between that artwork and wine, but I couldn’t see one. This utterly profound Mouton will need to sleep for 15+ years before it will reveal any secondary nuances, but it is a packed and stacked first-growth Pauillac of enormous potential. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2060+." In a half bottle it will mature more quickly and sooner be ready to enjoy. Very Limited!!!!
