Concha Y Toro Pinot Noir Marqués da Casa Concha 2010
Editorial Reviews for Concha Y Toro Pinot Noir Marqués da Casa Concha
Some toast and sweet wood spice on the nose balances some black currant fruit with a nice herbaceous underlay. This is a nicely balanced, slightly small-scaled wine in the mouth with good acidity, nice freshness to the smoky, slightly earthy black currant fruit and a nice bed of fine-grained yet austere tannins. The finish is a touch coarse and woody, but the fruit does pop on the finale. Reminds me of modest Bordeaux. 85pts
French oak, violets, black spice, orange oil, briar wood, toast rather sweet leading edge, rich with a nice rigid, firm spine, nice clear, fresh cut fruit, crushed blackberry, soft, a little creamy on the backend, tactile tannins on the finish, good length, powerful if balanced wine 87
My Rating 87: Amazing good for the low price of 5-6 Dollars. Full fruity wine with strong flavors and nose of Carmenere. For everyday wine this exceeds his requirement.
vegatal green pepper nose....medium bodied with hint of red fruit and pepper....lengthy finish
My first thought was, "Mmm, woody!" The nose is fairly understated with dried fruits and wood. It's nice and balanced, a smooth texture and tannins that are sure to be noticed, but won't make your eyes roll back in your head. I'm enjoying this wine with tabbouleh and hummus tonight, probably will enjoy it more with a spot of dark chocolate later!

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.
A concentrated and flashy red, delivering tasty layers of cassis, kirsch and plum sauce that are backed by fresh acidity and a fine finish of iron, black licorice and juicy fruit. Drink now.
The 2010 Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere spends 18 months in French oak barrels of which 35% is new. It has an agreeable chocolate powder scented nose with notes of licorice coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins, touches of mocha and spice with a dash of cardamom towards the dusty finish. Drink now–2013.
Textbook Carmenère, with dark but soft plum and blackberry fruit laced with tobacco and sage notes. Stays fleshy on the smoky finish.
Farbe sattes Dunkelrot Bukett: Aromen nach Pflaume, Johannisbeere und Schokolade mit einer Note nach Kaffee und leichten Röstaromen Geschmack: voller Körper, mild, gut strukturiert mit einer Note nach Pflaume und Gewürzen
Surprisingly robust and concentrated for its price, this wine's blackberry flavors are wrapped in dense tannins. For lamb chops.
Scents of chocolate and black pepper lead into this juicy and soft carmenère. A terrific value at $10; you get a ripe block of fruit, ready to drink now.
