2006 Concha y Toro Terrunyo "Block 27 Peumo Vineyard" Carmenere Cachapoal Valley

SKU #1047578

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red wines start with the saturated purple 2006 Carmenere Peumo Vineyard Block 27. The nose offers up spice box, mineral, plum, black cherry, and blueberry. This is followed by a round, mouth-filling plush wine with ripe underlying tannin, complex, spicy flavors, excellent density, and a long, fruit-filled finish. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2012 to 2021." 92 points Wine Spectator: "Dark in profile, with plum and currant fruit, but very pure, with silky tannins and a long, stylish finish that lets incense, spice and mineral notes play out. Deftly done. Drink now through 2011." (07/09) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "As in previous years, this wine delivers earthy, proprietary aromas and flavors on a structured frame. The palate has forward berry and plum flavors, while the feel is rich, only mildly tannic and 100% healthy. Never does it sag, and with adequate acidity it doesn't lack for purpose or a finish line. Drinkable now into 2011." (09/09) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Suave aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and licorice. A smoky note comes up with air and carries onto the palate, which offers sweet red and black fruit flavors and fine-grained tannins. Sappy red fruits linger on the long, nicely focused finish. This is complex enough to drink now but I'd hold off for at least another couple of years." (Mar/Apr 09)

Chile

- Located on the western coast of South America and bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes to the East, the Chilean wine-growing climate is similar to that of California's Napa Valley and Bordeaux. The Chilean wine industry is known for being consistently free of phylloxera, but political and economic unrest has brought its own source of disorder. The recent establishment of a free market has resuscitated the wine industry, and significant investments have been made, switching the economic focus from domestic production to exports. Chile produces roughly a quarter of the wine Argentina produces, and is known for single-varietal exports, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. It's a popular region in the U.S. known for inexpensive and tasty wine. Click for a list of bestselling items from Chile.
