Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

The 2007 Concha Y Toro Terrunyo Block 27 Carmenère is a medium to full bodied wine, with intensely aromatic notes of integrated chocolate, green pepper and oak on the nose and blackberry, coconut and vanilla on the palate. It is nicely structured/balanced with refined tannins (decanting for 1+ hour, while sampling, will allow for evolution in the mouth to happen) and long and smooth finish. While perfectly good to drink now, it will enormously benefit from further aging, try from 2013 to 2018. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92.5 - would recommend buying it if it was still available; curiously(?!?) it took less than 2 months for it to sell out - must be due to the nice wooden 6-bottle case, rarely seen supplied with wines at this price. Tasted Oct/11.
Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

On the nose - beautiful! Violets. Lots of blackberries, prunes, cassis, blue berries. On the palate, full body. Ready to drink now and in the next 2-5 years. Meaty. Chewy. juicy-concentrated flavors of dark sweet berries. Balanced acidity. Hints of mint on the long pleasant finish. Very rewarding wine.

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.
