Concha y Toro Gran Reserva Carmenere 2014
|Brand||Concha y Toro|
Wine SpectatorDesignation Smart Buys. A rich red, with concentrated flavors of dark plum, dried blackberry and mocha that are intensely spiced. Dark chocolate and mince pie notes show midpalate, followed by a lively finish. Drink now through 2019. 20,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastPrune, tobacco and wild berry aromas are jumbled together. This is big, grabby and a touch clumsy, with heavily oaked flavors of hickory and burnt corn running alongside mint and berry. A resiny, oaky finish tastes smothering.
