I have been a customer of Concha Y Toro for years. Neat bottle compared to the Bordeaux shape they normally use🍷

Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)

Los Vascos Estate Grown Colchagua Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Damn good straight open. Quite fruity for a cab, but not "sweet" by any means. Spices open nicely over the next few days recorked in the fridge. Lucky blind buy! Imported by Taub Family Selections. — 24 days ago

Reserva Casillero del Diablo Carménère 2018

Our first Carmenere. Tasted raspberry, pepper, and paired well with bbq. Would buy again. Lighter flavor and deep purple. — 18 days ago

Casas del Toqui

Gran Toqui Cachapoal Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

A friend brought this for me to try. I had their Leyenda bottling before, and loved it. This is equally impressive. Slightly ripe black fruits core with lots of earthy elements. Beautiful round acidity and very polished tannins.
I could not believe this only cost about $15.00!

Casa Lapostolle

Cuvée Alexandre Apalta Vineyard Syrah 2012

Tons of sediment, so give this a decant. It was open right away and very tasty, but better on day 3. Inky with lots of dark blue fruit. Some seasoned oak on the nose. Still good tannic structure, but not grippy in any way. The acidity is still there, but toned down. Dark blue fruit transfers to the palate. Wish I had more. — 19 days ago

Carmen

Gran Reserva Los Quillayes Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Deep ruby. Nose and medium-full palate of boysenberry, vanilla cassis, and dark rose. Fruit forward, but darker fruit and definitely not a “fruit bomb.” Medium minus acidity. Medium minus tannins. Classic Chilean style Cab with good fruit, but still enough earthy and herby characteristics to make for a nice all-around red. Great with grilled meats or hard cheeses. Drink now through 2027. — 5 days ago
