Winemaker's Notes:

"Produced from 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot, this sexy, seductive Le Petit Mouton is round, generous, elegant and pure with lots of blue and black fruits and no hard edges. Drink this seamless, impressive 2008 second wine over the next 10-15 years." --Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Deep ruby color. Wonderful blackcurrant, black cherry, and raspberry fruit and hints of mint. Chocolate notes, well integrated oak, velvety tannins, and medium acidity. Excellent length.

I'm quite impressed with this wine. It's juicy, succulent. Medium to full bodied. Slightly dry on the finish. It generally denotes a much more aged feel for a 2008. Your definitely getting you dollars worth here. It's sweet but not sweet, very well balanced. It reminds me of some much more expensive Napa Valley wines. Very smooth!

Broad-shouldered, with loam, sage, tobacco and currant flavors backed by a solid tannin structure. Dark and fleshy on the finish. Drink now through 2009.

Winemaker Marcelo Papa has crafted the best Marques Cabernet to date. Almost austere at first, it slowly opens to reveal opulent, juicy, savory fruit, its berry and mint flavors supported by a mineral acidity.

Marcelo Papa makes this wine from a sector of the same vineyard where Don Melchor grows, and in 2001, he has made the best Marqués cabernet yet. The wine's strawberry and cassis flavors fill out a voluptuous texture, their freshness and juicy richness balancing the ripe tannins. Try it with roast duck and raspberry sauce.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Marques de Casa Concha spent 14 months in French oak. Alluring aromas of cedar, lavender, blackcurrant and blackberry are followed by a plush, layered, succulent wine with gobs of black fruit, ripe tannin, and 2ndash;3 years of aging potential. It is a great value.

Dark red. Strong, varietally accurate aromas of bitter cherry, blackcurrant, dark chocolate and fresh tobacco. Lush and creamy yet juicy, with ripe cherry and mocha flavors. Sweet berry fruit flavors are wrapped in suave, silky tannins.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon ldquo;Marques de Casa Conchardquo; puts out classic toasty black currant aromas and flavors. This full-bodied wine has plenty of ripe fruit and well-integrated oak, tannin, and acidity. It has 2ndash;3 years of aging potential and should drink well through 2025.

The warm year plus winemaker Marcelo Paparsquo;s propensity to push his La Protectora Vineyard to super-ripeness resulted in this dense and chocolatey red. Yet despite the richness, a solid core of tannins supports the weight and a juicy acidity buoys the fruit. You may want to give it an extra boost with a light chill; the presence of a thick-cut steak would help as well.
