2009 Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon
January 20, 2012 - Norman Bentley
More than five years of scores of 90 or better! Now that's consistent! The 2009 Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon, from Concha y Toro of Chile, gets a 91 score from the "Wine Enthusiast", and a 92 score from Norm!
I have enjoyed the wines from Concha y Toro for many years, and they are always a great buy in the nine to twelve dollar range, but for about ten bucks more, you get a really superb bottle of wine from the Marques de Casa Concha label. This wine hails from the Puente Vineyard near the town of the same name, and this Cabernet vineyard has established Concha y Toro as a premier purveyor of Cabernet Sauvignon.
We enjoyed a bottle of Marques de Casa Concha Cab the other night along with a two inch thick rib eye, and it was a delightful experience. Of course the wine was so good, I could hardly concentrate on the food. This is a big, well rounded Cab with gobs of cherry and cassis flavors assaulting your senses. The finish is well balanced with a mild oak signature after its fourteen months in the barrel. Not only does the sensation linger, but the delicious flavors sail on into the night!
This wonderful wine would of course pair well with any grilled meat, but if you really like Cabernet Sauvignon, get a bottle and drink it by itself! Norm's score is 92.
Price: $19 - $24
WINE - God's proof of his love for humanity
