Concha y Toro ‘Marques Casa Concha’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile
Review Date : 21-Jun-2012
Very full, saturated black-red colour with some garnet hues on edge. Soft, intense aromas of blackcurrant fruit, savoury herbs and olives show on bouquet with a little sappiness and resiny oak. Medium-full bodied, deep and concentrated blackcurranty fruit is complexed by a savoury herb note and a little oak resin. The palate is underlined by firmly defined tannins which provide real drive, but are sufficiently fine-grained to allow approachability. The brightness of the fruit expression is enhanced by brisk acidity, which features on the moderately sustained pure curranty finish. This is a classically structured Cabernet Sauvignon with the drive to develop over the next 6-8+ years. Match with herb-marinated, roasted red meats. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Puente Alto' vineyard in the Maipo Valley, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 15 months in French oak barrels. 18.0/20 Jun 2012 RRP $27.99
