Concha Y Toro Merlot Peumo Marqués de Casa Concha 2000
This vintage is coming into it’s own right now and drinking very well. It has a very dark purple color that holds all the way to the rim. The nose on this wine (after an hour in the decanter) is cassis and clove. Most of the earthy tones fall off after some time in the decanter. You really must give this wine some time to breathe to full enjoy it. The flavor structure is complex with cassis, prune, blackberry and tobacco all working nicely together. Tannins are fine and well integrated.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Intense dark, inky flavor, insanely dark. At first a big hit of green pepper that starts to blow off, though tons of cassis, and black pepper. Tight in the mouth with an intensity that is very rich. Tannins are starting to fade though the acidity is very rich and still a bit sharp. Rich and full, though a bit out of blalance, The acidity needs to chill out to come to fruitition.
Still rich and round. Full of depth. Nice wine with a few more years left on it. 3.5/5 [NR]

The barrel sample of the 2000 Don Melchor I tasted was medium to dark ruby/purple-colored. It reveals candied red fruit aromas and a majestically concentrated character. This jammy, cherry and raspberry-flavored wine has outstanding potential. It is ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
