Concha y Toro Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
from Chile, South America
"Very solid, with ripe cassis, blackberry and boysenberry fruit offset by vanilla, mineral and cocoa notes. Shows a loamy undertow, but stays fresh and focused through the finish. This has a great track record of value. Drink now through 2007."
This Cabernet Sauvignon shows why Chile is becoming such a great region to find rich, expressive, and good value wines. Full of beautifully ripe berry fruit, spice, and cassis, this is the perfect "house red" - get it while you can.

Excellent cabernet. Strong black cherry aroma with a hint o spice. Nice finish with sweet tannins. I was lucky enough to buy it with employee discount. $12 per bottle :) …thanks wine.com

Aroma and taste of smoked sausage prevail in this inky, good value cab from Chile. Quite different terroir expression than US or French cabs, but interesting.
Smoked sausage flavors in wine? A good thing, believe me. Try it.
