This is the seventh of twelve wines tasted from the Wines of Chile Blogger Tasting.
Wine #7: 2010 Concha y Toro Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere
Appellation: Cachapoal Valley
Notes: 14% ABV. Deep color. Plum jam and chocolate nose. Very rustic. Good fruit, some complexity, huge acid. This becomes a sour candy. I like acid and I like sour, but this becomes off balance. Some heat, too, but I’m not sure if that’s the acid or the alcohol talking. Grows on me as I drink it, decanting may smooth out the rough edges.
Rating: 2.5/5 (got an extra .5 because it’s getting better.)
Price: $22 SRP
