Winemaker Notes

#70 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018

Deep, dark red in color with lush aromas of cherries, blackcurrant, and blackberry with a touch of black and white pepper. Tight and focused with deeply concentrated flavors and an almost silky texture with soft, smooth tannins that come to the fore at the beginning of the long finish.

Pair with duck magret or confit; meats with sweet-and-sour sauces.

Blend: 85% Carmenere, 15% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Even in cool years, like 2016, the generous sun of Peumo manages to ripen carmenère without difficulty. This wine feels broad, with ripe flavors of blackberries and black cherries. The breezes that flow along the Cachapoal River translate to freshness in the grapes, providing a lively, tenacious acidity that makes this wine easy to drink. The black-cherry flavors last in a deliciously herbal finish.

COMMENTARY: Throughout the last three decades, Chilean winemakers have been building a case for Carmenère. While the road has been slow and arduous, Concha y Toro has been one of the grape's best champions. The 2016 Concha y Toro Gran Reserva Serie Riberas Carmenère is an excellent effort. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows attractive ripeness and delicate balance. Its aromas and flavors of red fruits and savory spices make it a lovely pairing partner with Cantonese steam fish in a slightly spicy sweet and sour sauce. (Tasted: October 25, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Lots of freshly-cut herbs and spices as well as bay leaf to this carmenere along with hints of creme de cassis and a foreground of blueberry sauce. Fresh and juicy on the palate with high acidity, soft tannins and a fruity finish. Drink now.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This boasts richly spiced aromas, with flavors to match, as well as dried raspberry, portobello mushroom and currant elements. Dried beef notes on the powerful finish. Drink now through 2021. 33,000 cases made.
