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!

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.

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.

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.

Rock-solid, with nicely integrated structure for the vintage, allowing the full-bodied core of loam, blackberry, fig sauce and raspberry to stretch out, with lingering mint and cocoa notes on the plush, fleshy finish.

Stands out for its fruit quality, balance and structure. The nose is strong and piercing, with charred notes, black-fruit aromas and depth. Ripe and clean in the mouth, with elevated blackberry flavors and a chewy, meaty mouthfeel. Toasty and tasting of black licorice on the finish. A serious, well-made Chilean Cab to drink now through 2012.

Lush but structured, delivering layers of black currant, tobacco, loam and dark licorice pushed by ripe, solid structure, with a long, dark finish. Always rock-solid. Drink now through 2011.

Think of this as Napa meets Chile. Copious amounts of new American oak provides a velvety cushion for the lush cassis, ripe blackberry and juicy currants. In addition to its plush mouthfeel, there are subtle notes of fresh pipe tobacco and enticing aromas of roasted coconut and mocha on the nose. Always a consistent value.
