Reviews and Ratings

Alain Charpentier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I forgot a bottle of Marques Casa Concha 2008, Cabernet Sauvignon in my cellar and drank it 3 years later. What a pleasant surprise! This full-bodied red has aromas of black cherries, raspberries and a hint of vanilla. After decanting the wine for 30 minutes, the tannins were velvety and, on the palate, red ripe fruit with a touch of oak preceded a long finish. A lot of wine for the price.
Pairing suggestion: Pepper steak
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The 2011 Concha Y Toro Marques De Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon , aged in French Oak barrels for 18 months, is nicely aromatic with blackberry, black cherry as well as woody/light vanilla notes. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine, with forward acidity, refined tannins (decant for 60 min) and a medium to long and smooth finish. Drink with food or sip on its own; drink now till 2018+. My impression: NICE, 88+ pts – the wine was closed and would benefit from longer decanting. Tasted at Wines of Chile 2013 tasting in October/13 - http://grapeselections.com/wines-of-chile-2013/

Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Nice Cab, but their Syrah is better. Black Berries and other other wild berries. Smooth and enjoyable. Ready to drink. Lacks a bit of depth and complexity. Good, not amazing. Catena has better Cab for the same price.
