Winemaker Notes

Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding dark ruby red wine with bell pepper, smoke and eucalyputus aromas. The wine is aged for 18 months in one-, two and three-year-old French oak barrels, and then aged a further 2 months after bottling. It is an appetizing, smooth, well-rounded and tasteful wine. Black currants flavors, well-balanced with a long finish. Enjoy this fine Cabernet Sauvignon with red meats, cheeses and pasta.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Concha y Toro offers three Upper Maipo cabernets, including this latest release from the warm and dry 2008 vintage. Marcelo Papa oversees the viticulture and winemaking for Marqués, grown at a vineyard on alluvial soils just east of Don Melchor’s vines. The wine is both tense and intense, the ripe flavors concentrated, almost explosive with blueberry and black cherry notes set off by a hint of menthol. It’s a big wine, even bigger than its neighbor Melchor, but with a more refined structure, built on a foundation of fine tannins that sustains the tension between fruit and texture. A wine to cellar for at least five years.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon was blended with 6% Carmenere and 1% Petit Verdot with the grapes sourced from the Puente Alto Vineyard in Maipo. It was aged for 18 months in French oak, 39% new. Aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, violets, and black currant set the stage for an elegant, smooth-textured, spicy wine with a firm underlying structure and a lengthy, pure finish. This outstanding value may well evolve for 1-2 years but can be approached now.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Inky-purple. High-pitched aromas of black raspberry and cherry are complicated by notes of sandalwood and cola. Deeply concentrated but light on its feet, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and good tangy acidity. Repeats the red fruit note on a long, sappy, smooth finish. This wine is built to age but offers a lot of sex appeal now.
