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.
Concha Y Toro Trio Reserva Named Varietal Blends-Red 2009, Maipo Valley, Chile: 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. Drink: 2011-2014. 433912 14% XD 750 mL $14.95 Score: 88/100.
