Concha Y Toro Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Maipo, Chile 

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $20.



Dark, Inky in color.

Veggies on the nose with bell pepper, black currants, blackberries, plums, oak, earth, chocolates, vanilla, asparagus, dill, bitter herbs and black pepper. (Like a fresh salad).

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice, long legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, blackberries, strawberries, earth, leather, bell pepper, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, chocolates, forest floor, tobacco, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Medium finish with firm tannins and bitter herbs.

An average Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile. Very earthy and a bit unbalanced. Better with food, though.

Not one for long term aging, but 2 to 3 years in the bottle, would definitely do good. Requires 90 minutes to open up properly.
This wine has way too much vegetables for my taste.

Grapes are grown on gravely soils, at the foot hills of the Andes, and come from only 2 specific Vinyards.

14% alcohol by volume.
