(2021) Concha y Toro do a great job at all sorts of price levels, and this from their upmarket Marqués de Casa Concha range comes from vineyard at 650m altitude. It is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 17% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot, and aged 16 months in barriques. Winemaker Marcelo Papa estimates it will cellar well for 20 years, but right now it delivers a big, deep, sonorous glass of wine, plum, blackcurrant and sleek spices carry through to a palate of dense fruit, slicked with vanilla, creamy and black fruit concentration and a broad base of tannin. It's a concentrated mouthful of wine for sure that needs a steak or something off the char-grill, but big-scaled, serious and intense stuff. Watch the video review
