2006 Concha y Toro Marques de Casa Concha Merlot
Bright, dark and deep red. The dark colour sets the tone for the flavours that are as black as night: dark cherry pits, dark berries, a lasting smoky yet rich black-tar. Though tannic now, this wine should evolve. Theres already some complexity beginning to develop out of its firm, quiet supple core.

User Tasting Note
Fellow Drync'rLimited production Merlot, barrel aged in French oak for 14 months. Intense plum and cherry aromas. Oak adds generous hints of chocolate and vanilla to this full-bodied wine with velvety tannins.<br/><br/>Had a couple of these. One when Grant, Julie, David and Annie were round for dinner at end of July 09.
MHCastensaw it in the Total Wine list. tried it and like it very much. Cindy liked it. very smooth with a cab-like fullnes that is really solid. get a couple of cases and let it nature. . . or, drink it now.
