Concha y Toro Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
|Brand||Concha y Toro|
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Riberas Cabernet Sauvignon (with 10% Carmenere in its makeup) was sourced from the Palo Santo Vineyard in Marchigue, Colchagua Valley. It spent 14 months in mostly seasoned French and American oak. It offers up an initially reticent nose of cedar, tobacco, spice box, violets, and black currant. This sets the stage for a wine with layered fruit, savory, spicy flavors, excellent volume, and a lengthy, pure finish. This excellent value can be approached now but will drink nicely for another 5-6 years.
