...
Every bit an excellent wine in 2006.

Aromas of plum, cola, pepper and
Christmas spice are alluring, while the palate is saturated yet balanced.

Flavors of
plum and berry are perfectly ripe, and the structure and texture are just right.

“Concha y Toro really knows how to extract the most from its

grapes as this
vanilla

scented Merlot from Peumo in the Maipo Valley shows.

Opulent
Blackberry and cassis richness and spicy notes in a framework of supple tannins
and juicy acidity.”

-
staining ruby.

Powerful aromas of red and dark berries, incese and fres
h
rose.

Fleshy, gently sweet black raspberry and cherry liquer flavors stain the palate
and become firmer with air, gaining a zesty anise qualiy.

Finished with a strong
echo of dark berries and persistent spiciness.

I’
d resist the temptation to open thi
s
for another few years.

Impeccably balanced and savory, with firm structure, juicy plum and black
raspberry fruit, and a hint of smoke.

“This Merlot from Concha y Toro is very dark ruby in color. It opens with an oak
infused blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced,
and soft with juicy black

currant like flavors with some blackberries mixed in. The
finish is dry and shows noticeable tannins that are quite persistent. We felt this
wine would pair nicely with meatloaf. Enjoy
