Marqués de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

91 points – “Smart Buy” – Wine Spectator
Nathan Wesley, March 31, 2013
“This compact yet suave red is marked with silky layers of cassis and wild berry fruit that mingle with well-integrated hints of graphite, tobacco and toasty oak. Drink now through 2018.”

90 points – Wine Enthusiast
Michael Schachner, March 1, 2013
“An opening of dense black-fruit, spice, violet and toast aromas functions as an invitation to this plump, chunky, well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate bears boysenberry, blackberry and cassis flavors, with chocolate and molasses accents. Toasty, warm and rich on the finish. Drink now–2016.”

Marqués de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

91 points – “Editor’s Choice” – Wine Enthusiast
Michael Schachner, June 1, 2011; Best Chilean Wines, 2011
“A real beauty with graphite, minerality and rich, clean, exciting berry fruit and controlled oak aromas. Very pure and stylish Cabernet Sauvignon with fat but balanced cassis and sweet berry flavors. Big tannins lend structure and framework; young like a baby now; will be better and more evolved come fall, winter and over the next few years.”

Patricio Tapia, June, 2012

“Pure, ripe and berry-scented, this has noen of the menthol aromas usually associated with cabernet from Puente Alto. Instead, it’s big and sweet, soft and creamy, with a black pepper kick to the tannins.”

Nathan Wesley, October 15, 2012
“A light eucalyptus note leads to a jammy palate of kirsch, cassis and blackberry liqueur flavors, which cruise through the long finish of mesquite, licorice and dark spice hints. Drink now through 2014.”

Marqués de Casa Concha Chardonnay 2011

90 points – Wine Spectator
Nathan Wesley, March 31, 2013
“This smoky white opens up with dense pineapple, Pink Lady apple and zesty citrus notes that are tightly wound on a bright, medium-bodied frame. Drink now.”

Marqués de Casa Concha Chardonnay 2010

90 points – Wine Spectator
Nathan Wesley, September 30, 2013
Top 100 Wines of 2012: Rank #87, November, 2012
“A fresh, harmonious white, featuring pineapple, citrus and spice notes backed by juicy acidity and creamy texture. Well-integrated, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit and chalk. Drink now. 8,000 cases made.”

Marqués de Casa Concha Carmenere 2009

91 points – Wine & Spirits
Best Chilean Carmenere, June, 2011
“A wine of enormous power, this is dominated by black fruit flavors and a youthfully blunt texture – a Carmenere far from its ideal point of consumption. The clean lines and firm acidity will help it develop in bottle for at least three years. If you open it now, decant it for a steak.”

91 points – Robert Parker
Jay Miller, February, 2012
“It displays a more brooding personality in its promising bouquet of sandalwood, exotic spices, dried herbs, floral notes, plum, and blackberry. In the glass it is full-bodied, rich, plush, and structured. The wine conceals enough fine-grained tannin to evolve for 3-4 years. This lengthy effort, stylistically similar but less expensive than the Terrunyo Carmeneres, is a great value that will be at its best from 2014 to 2024.”

Marqués de Casa Concha Merlot 2009

90 points – Wine & Spirits June, 2011
“An expansive merlot, this wine’s black fruit fights with the chocolate flavors for dominance, a battle filled with ripe, sweet sensations. A substantial red designed for winter and Camembert.”

Marqués de Casa Concha Sauvignon Blanc 2011

90 points – Wine Spectator
Nathan Wesley, March 31, 2012
“This compact white sets a serious tone, with concentrated layers of lime, grapefruit, flint and pea shoot notes. Ripe, with plenty of zip to the long, savory finish. Drink now.”

Marqués de Casa Concha Syrah 2010

91 points – Wine Spectator
Nathan Wesley, April 30, 2013
“This compact red needs aeration, featuring layers of blackberry and dark plum notes wound around fine tannins, with the long finish evoking savory grilled game, cured olive and mocha. Best from 2014 through 2018.”

Marqués de Casa Concha Syrah 2009

91 points – Daily Wine Picks – Wine Spectator
Nathan Wesley, October 15, 2012
“Flashy yet compact, with floral wild berry coulis, cassis, spice and game notes all tightly wound on a fullbodied frame, as hints of salted licorice, smoke and spice add range to the fruit-filled finish. Drink now through 2016.”
