Marques de Casa Concha Carmenère 2010, Peumo Chile

Alcohol/Volume 14.5%

REVIEW: A purple-hued Chilean Red that is meaty and has aromas of cassis jam, blueberry pie, violet, sweet tobacco, cedar, vanilla, and sweet spice.

It is full-bodied on the palate with smooth tannins and an acidity that is perfectly balanced with the flavours and structure of the wine. It has tart blackberry, dark berry, and black pepper flavours with a long finish that is both oaky and smoky. Overall, this wine is very well made with its beautiful harmony and has aged wonderfully.

Tasted January 2019.

WINE-FOOD PAIRING: Enjoy with a savoury pork roast drizzled in a dark fruit and black pepper reduction. The wine does not overpower the meat in anyway and the abundance of jammy dark fruit found in the wine complements this meal perfectly.

SCORE: 91
