High octane aromatics include graphite, cedar, creosote and mint in Concha Y Toro’s archetype carmenère and then a field of poppies mixed with violets and roses. The aromatic potpourri is dramatic, vivid and intense. Currants, tobacco and deep earthy maroon peppers come later, mostly in flavours that keep the flow and the plan moving ahead. The 27 Block is the place (or "the man" if you will) and it once again delivers in 2016. There is little to no hedonism, very integrated make-up and an odd sense of cool climate or at least a real sense of cool vintage. I admire it all the same. Drink 2019-2024. Tasted May 2018.
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

My tasting notes for this wine are so dissimilar from others perhaps you should disregard this one. I just found it to be incredibly green and under-ripe. Not worthy of the price.

Natalie's Review

Concha Y Toro Terrunyo Peumo Vineyard Block 27 Carmenère 2016, Peumo, Cachapoal Valley, Chile: The vines are planted in alluvial clay loam 170 metres above sea level. Winemaker Ignacio Recabarren hones his craft on this single-vineyard bottling. This Chilean red wine is made from the country's iconic red grape Carmenère sourced from the winery estate's Peumo Vineyard Block 27. Grapes are sourced from Entre Cordilleras, Peumo and Cachapoal Valley where the climate is sunny, sub-humid Mediterranean with pronounced daily temperature variation. The Spanish word Terrunyo means terroir. This Carmenère is complex, deep, savoury and bursting with luscious black fruit aromas and flavours. This wine gives and gives right out to a long finish. Brought to us by Concha Y Toro. Pair with grilled meats. Drink: 2018-2022. 562892 13.50% D 750 mL  $34.95 Score: 93/100. July 3, 2018 Top Rated Red Wine. Glorious Game Wine  Full Review

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.
