Concha Y Toro Rosé Merlot 2008
Dark violet in color, the nose had plenty of dried fruit and earth tones with a medium body and finish. Picked this up at Costco while on vacation with friends. It is a good wine for a 9 dollar magnum.
Deep purple color. Red Fruit, Plum, pete and smoke on the nose. Medium to full bodied taste with tones of smoky oak. Paired up with tacos the hot sauce brought out peppery spicy finish.
This is a mass produced Cabernet-Merlot from Chile that does not fluctuate much year to year. I have probably had the last 4 or 5 vintages of this particular wine and I always have the same impression. This wine is a good wine just to have around and its price allows a student like me to do so. Medium bodied with hints of spices and mild tannins. Finish is pleasant but leaves quickly. Most people will like this wine so it is especially good if you have party with a lot of people. Especially a lot of people who are not all that into wine. You can't go wrong with a magnum of decent wine for $6 to $8.
I can see this wine turning amazing if paired with some goat cheese. Woody and delicious bouquet on the nose Medium body, light tannins, buttery taste. Finishes smooth.
This is a very nice everyday red. It has a nice garnet color. I would describe it as a fruit forward red with gentle tannins.
Great, low cost wine to cook with. Soaked a flank steak in this with and shallot and pepper. YUM

Juicy, with apple, pineapple and fig fruit kept lively by mineral and floral notes. Very lively finish has nice length. Drink now.
Fat but juicy, this tasty Chardonnay delivers plenty of fig, quince, pear and toast flavors, with hints of honeysuckleand minerals chiming in on the finish for added effect. Open-knit and delicious. Drink now through 2004.
Shows a nice mix of dried pineapple, papaya, pear and fig flavors, with a long, minerally finish. Has a nice layer of toast, but stays fresh and pure. Drink now.
Very ripe, but with great, underlying juiciness to the quince, Jonagold apple and pear flavors. The long, pure finish keeps you coming back for more. Drink now through 2010.
Burgundian barrels are used for this fig-and pear-inflected single-vineyard Chardonnay, which resonates with the Limari regionrsquo;s signature minerality.
The 2007 Chardonnay Marques de Casa Concha offers up toasty oak, butterscotch, pear, and tropical fruit notes. Creamy-textured, round, and full-flavored, all of its components are well-integrated in this serious, flavorful effort meant for drinking over the next 2ndash;3 years.
A little sweet and floral, but friendly, clean and balanced as a whole. On the nose and palate the usual oak and toast is present and accounted for, yet the mouthfeel gets a boost from welcome acidity. Modern and easy to like, with tasty apple and citrus flavors.
