Reviews and Ratings

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Rich and full, with chocolate, blueberry, blackberry, cassis and sweet spice. Delicious treat!
This is yet another show-stopping Carmenere from Concha Y Toro that is sure to please. It has an alluring and complex nose with ripe blackberry, topsoil, chocolate cake, black plum, cherry, mint and vanilla all making an appearance. Generous, rich and flavourful with sweet black fruit and spicy flavours balanced by plush tannins and medium acidity. A balanced powerhouse. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.
