Vintages Wine Panel: A blend of three grapes (the “Trio”): Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. Viña Concha y Toro finds the warmth and lengthy growing season they need to perfectly ripen the grapes for this wine in the Maipo Valley. From Cab Sauv the wine gets cassis fruit and body; from Shiraz, blackberry and peppery tones; and from Cab Franc, a lovely herbaceous accent. My note: extraordinary value/taste for the money! Mocha and dark chocolate aromas wrap themselves seductively around a core of fleshy blackberry fruit. Full-bodied and smooth.

Named Varietal Blends-Red food pairings: roast beef dinner.

Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I once asked a wine rep to name his favorite wine under $20 and this is the one he told me. At under $15, this is exceptional value. Cabarnet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc combine to make an easy to drink medium-bodied wine with notes of plums, raspberries and and black currant. With those three grapes you would expect some oak aging and you would be correct. I believe it is aged in both French and American oak to smooth it out.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.
