This is a very dark, almost black merlot from the Peumo sub-app of the Rapel Valley. It’s loaded with cassis, black...

Super ripe and concentrated, this is serious merlot from the premium Rapel valley subzone of Peumo. The nose delivers...

This full bodied, nicely complex, 2007 Concha Y Toro Marques De Casa Concha Merlot has nice aromas of fruity to INTEGRATED notes of black cherry, prune, pronounced smoke, cut hay, oak, emerging leather and vanilla. It is tannic (decant for 1 hour or more) and the finish is long, nicely balanced and with some heat. It is best to lay it down for next several years, best 2015 - 2020. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 93 pts - I highly recommend this wine, especially if you can age it as suggested. Tasted Nov/10.

Dark purple. Excellent nose for a wine at this price: cocoa, menthol, blackberry, gingerbread spices, really nice.
The full bodied palate is not nearly as interesting as the nose: it's right on the edge of over-ripeness and over-extraction. Plenty of soft tannin, sweet (a bit too sweet for my taste), decent balance. The palate is big and bold but also simple and singular. Tasty, but became boring. Good finish.

For people who like J. Lohr's Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon: good value, easy-drinking, borderline fruit-bomb crowd pleaser. Drink now or hold.

89 + extra point for the nose.

Great nose upon opening with lots of fruit, cigar box, but it faded after a few minutes and left a good wine with good tannins, juicy berry fruits and a long finish that will stain your lips and tongue purple. Dense purple color.
