K&L Notes

Marqués de Casa Concha is one of Concha y Toro's best value brands, perhaps the wine that seems to be getting the most focus from head winemaker Marcelo Papa and his team. Featuring prized fruit from the high elevation Puente Alto vineyard (the same vineyard whose grapes are featured in Chile's original luxury bottling of Cabernet, Don Melchor). This is definitely one of our not to be missed values in Cabernet this year.

    The nose has coffee mixed with spices and fruit. Bright acidity with a beautiful and elegant finish of blackberries and spices. This is a complex wine that would go very well with a hearty meal. With all of those traits, this cab comes at a great the price!

    This is a great example of high elevation Cabernet done in such a way that it feels like there is a minimum of winemakers input. Dark rich flavors with just a hint of oak aromas, stony mineral notes, and solid but fine tannins. Stock up on this, it is one of the best deals on Cab in the store.

    Sourced from some of Concha y Toro's top quality Puente Alto Cabernet vines, same as is the case for their iconic and long lived Don Melchor (SRP $99.99), this is solid Cabernet at $20 - certainly respectable compared to some of the better examples out there from anywhere in the world. At under $12 and nearly 50% off, however, this is a must have Cab. Please do not confuse this with Concha y Toro's cheaper bottlings and brands, as this wine is much more serious in execution (think used barrels and even a portion of large format botti imported from the Piemonte!) as well as in profile. Aromas of darker fruits, cedar, freshly ground black peppercorns and licorice lead to a juicy palate of ripe red and dark fruits, with elegant, long tannins which make this taste much more expensive than most any $12 red wine you will drink this year (remember this is conceived to be a $20 bottle). A great deal for anyone who wants to have great value Cabernet around the house.
