Smoky sweet fruit in the nose, smoky mocha with nice oak and finish. Smooth, nice! Read more

I have to agree with fellow Snoother Tabednar's review. This is a decent house red that's affordable to boot. Read more

My parents really enjoy this wine. They buy it in mass quantities (6 magnums) from Sam's and finish a bottle in about 3 days. That being said, this wine is an enjoyable "house wine" that is nice to have around. This wine is medium bodied with medium dryness. You can taste slight tannins with a hint of spicy berry. Being a mass produced wine, it leave little on the palate and does not have much finish. This can be expected for the $7 price tag for a magnum. If you are in the mood to drink a lot of wine without breaking the bank I would recommend this but if you want to experience the true terroir of Chile I would look elsewhere...

One of the best examples of the varietal I've ever tasted - 90% Carmenere with 10% Cab thrown in for grace notes. Full-bodied w/ powerful blackfruit and spice - and a little black pepper - and while almost 15% alcohol and rich, isn't an overwhelming fruit bomb. Nice finish and really smooth tannins. Just outstanding and marvelous value.

A tão falada safra histórica de vinhos tinto reserva da Casillero 2007 realmente produziu uma vinho diferenciado. Não sei dizer o quanto superior aos anteriores já que nunca fui grande consumidor do vinho. Mas o Carmenère está excelente. Aroma, achocolatado e frutas vermelhas. Fica uma leve impressão de que falta algo, o gosto não é tão persistente. Mas pelo preço no Brasil de R$ 33,00 é um vinho espetacular.

Great Value, won't astound but won't disappoint either. Smooth is the name of the game here...hints of chocolate, plum, and almond.

Excellent value for money. Smooth, well balanced, dark fruits, touch of chocolate. Good with burgers, grilled meats etc

Violet red in the glass; flavors of herbs, berries and pepper are apparent in the palate. The wine is soft, medium-bodied, rounded and harmonic with a persistent finish. Very smooth, this affordable sipper provides forward fruit and easy drinkability, while a touch of Carménère offers structure and longevity.

A plush Merlot, with a nice core of plum flavors and a good herbal edge. Finishes on a slightly sweet note. Drink now through 1999.

Tiefes Rot. Pflaumen, Gewürzen mit Noten nach Schokolade und Vanille. Komplex, weich, samtig, angenehm mit einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.

Dunkles und tiefes Rot mit Violettenuancen.Sehr elegant, komplex, Duft nach schwarzen Früchten, Pflaumen, schwarze Beeren mit Stachelbeer- und Tabaknuancen. Gut strukturiert, Geschmack nach bitterer Schokolade, süsse Tannine, lebhaft und konzentriert. Die Basis ist fruchtig mit einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.

The Marques de Casa Concha series begins with the 2007 Carmenere which spent 16 months in French oak. Saturated purple in color, it offers up a splendid bouquet of toasty oak, tobacco, Asian spices, plum, and blueberry. Mouth-coating, layered, and bordering on opulent, there is plenty of ripe tannin lurking under the fruit, succulent flavors, and excellent balance. This awesome value will be at its best from 2012 to 2020.
