Concha Y Toro Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere 2007

Producer: 
Concha Y Toro
Item name: 
Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere
Wine type: 
Red
Reviewer:

This is a dangerous wine! With a deep purple hue, long and slow legs, and aromas of cassis-blackberry, dark cherry, chocolate and tumeric, this leads to flavors of blackberry and chocolate that finish soft and smooth. It is dangerous because there are no hard edges and very seamless, which make it taste like juice. What a value! Yum!

Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere 2007

It is undeniably a good wine and great value for money, but since when does a wine become 'dangerous' because it tastes of fruit juice? Such a comparison usually tends to indicate a lack of refinement or complexity for most European palates.
