A ripe and muscular red, with concentrated flavors of plum pudding, cherry tart and dried blackberry, filled with Asian spice notes. Finishes with dark chocolate, mint and minerally accents. Drink now through 2020. 25,000 cases made.

Saturated ruby. Energetic red berry and floral aromas are complemented by deeper notes of mocha and vanilla. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and cherry flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Clings with very good tenacity on the finish, which is given shape by smooth, fully absorbed tannins. While this wine has plenty of material to age, it’s pretty tasty right now.

In 2013, they changed the source for their Merlot from Rapel to Maule. So the 2013 Merlot Marqués de Casa Concha is produced with fruit from San Clemente in the Maule Valley, and contains 15% Cabernet Sauvignon from vines planted between 1997 and 2000. As many of the reds lately, the wine was aged in a combination of 5,000-liter botti and French barriques (25% new) for some 15 months. It has a fresh and balsamic nose with some minty notes and also a bright note I often associate with Cachapoal, which Marcelo Papa tells me it’s more Maule, quite aromatic and showy. This is nothing like the Merlots from the past, and the wine shows much more acidity and freshness, showing the character of Maule, much sharper and fresher. 260,000 bottles produced.
