Chile, Cabernet Sauvignon, Marques de Casa Concha, Concha y Toro, Puente Alto, Maipo Valley, 2014

N/ Purple and red fruits. Smoked game. Brick dust. Paprika. Cedar / cigar box. Forest floor. Bell peppers.

T/ Medium full mouth feel. Loaded with red, blue, and black fruit flavors.

These are well-balanced with wood and Earth notes.

Only detraction is a light bell pepper note that will likely resolve with more bottle rest time. Once/if it does this wine will easily ascend into “A” range.

Price $22 – $27

“Denomination of Origin (D.O.): Puente Alto, Maipo Valley.

Both vineyards are located close to the foothills of the Andes Mountains—Puente Alto is 650 m a.s.l. and Pirque is 570 m a.s.l.—and have alluvial soils that are poor in nutrients, rocky, and highly permeable due to the abundance of gravel in the subsoil.”
