Quite a nice dance on the palate and a lovely finish.... I'm enjoying this more for the mouthfeel than for the aroma and taste. When I take a deep sniff, though, I'm almost having an allergic reaction (eyes watering, nose running). Am I coming down with a cold or *gasp* developing an allergy to red wine? Time will tell.
CONCHA Y TORO MARQUES DE CASA CONCHA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2008
Rock-solid, with nicely integrated structure for the vintage, allowing the full-bodied core of loam, blackberry, fig sauce and raspberry to stretch out, with lingering mint and cocoa notes on the plush, fleshy finish. Drink now through 2011. Smart Buy. Score - 90. (James Molesworth, www.winespectator.com, Nov. 15, 2010)
