2017 Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon

#08-2021

In the world of wine, very few wineries have been held in more admiration over the last two centuries than the Concha y Toro Winery in Maipo, Chile. They produce wines from eight up to two hundred dollars a bottle, and there is a consistency un-rivaled in the marketplace. Their twenty to thirty dollar line, labeled Marques de Casa Concha, can always be relied on to be among the best in their class. So when I chose this Cab to pair with our two inch thick fillet, grilled a perfect medium rare, for our Valentine’s Day dinner, I knew it would be a good match!

This is a big, fat, juicy Cab, with abundant flavors of dark berries, plum, and currants, which lead you to a finish with rich tannins, and a lingering presence just begging for another sip! The alcohol content is 14.5%, and Norm’s score is 91.

A bottle of this wonderful Cab, placed alongside a Caesar Salad, and a fillet from the “Best Butcher Shop in the Southeast”, which we are lucky to have right here in our little town, Thomaston, just a few miles south of Atlanta, made for a terrific Valentine’s Day! I hope yours was good as well!

Score: 91

Price: $20-$26
