Reviews and Ratings

Concha Y Toro wanted to create a new line of wines for consumers who knew a bit about wines and who were looking for something different. In 2007, winemakers came up with the Series Riberas. So named for a favourite site by one of Chile's major rivers - or “Riberas” (meaning riverbanks). Series Riberas Gran Reserva (2013) is ripe, sweet blackberry on the nose, chocolate and mint. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, smooth with more ripe, dark berries, sweet spice and chocolate. Tannins are soft and rounded and the wine has a good balance of refreshing acidity to rich fruit. Would go well with beef brisket as it would with dark chocolate cake. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

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.
