Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Concha Y Toro Marques De Casa Concha Carmenère is medium bodied, fruity to INTEGRATED wine, with nice aromas of blackberry, cedar, green pepper and vanilla. It is tannic (decant 30 to 60 min) and the finish is medium to long. It is good to drink now, but will benefit from aging as the structure is still a bit disconnected, drink 2013/4-2020. My impression: NICE, 90 pts - though nice, I cannot say it is a great buy. Tasted Sept/11.
Cheryl Cottrell-Smith rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

I'm not usually a fan of carmenere wines, but this one is nicely flavoured and not too tangy. If you're a fan of the grape, give it a try!
Opaque ruby. Black and blue fruits on the nose and in the mouth, with complicating licorice and floral nuances and a kick of cracked pepper. Smooth and expansive, with subtle tannins adding shape and grip on a long, spicy finish. Score: 90 Source: Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
