Concha y Toro
Maipo Valley, Chile
Had this with spaghetti, good friends, and good conversation.
Made to drink young – it had some tannin, but I would not think that you would want to keep this much more than a year or two. At first, the tannin seemed pretty strong, but after just a few minutes in the glass, it was not particularly perceptible, which seemed odd to me.
A good peppery backbone, black currant and other dark berry flavors. A very slight unpleasant chemical taste in the finish – almost metalic. Fairly long finish. Deep burgundy color – very dark
Recommended, with food. Not so great by itself, but a great compliment to tomato-based foods, or beef.
