Concha y Toro ‘Marques Casa Concha’ Maipo Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile
Review Date : 03-Apr-2017
Full, impenetrable black-red colour with youthful purple hues. This has a softly full nose with moderately deep and concentrated aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries and cassis liqueur along with dark herb and black mineral elements and earthy nuances. The fruit grows in clarity with aeration. Full-bodied, the palate possesses a well-concentrated and deep heart of rich blackcurrant and blackberry fruit along with dark herb and leafy notes. The fruit richness is encased by fine, grainy tannin structure and cut by fresh, crisp acidity. The palate has grip, body and presence, and carries to a strong, robust and brisk finish of blackcurrants and cassis. Match with roasted red meats and semi-hard cheeses over the next 7-10 years. A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 1% each of Merlot and Syrah from the ‘Puente Alto’ and ‘Pirque’ vineyards, Maipo, from vines planted 1986-2008, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 16 months in French oak barrels and foudre. 18.0/20 Apr 2017 RRP $31.99
