Winemaker's Notes
Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding dark ruby red wine with bell pepper, smoke and eucalyputus aromas. The wine is aged for 18 months in one-, two and three-year-old French oak barrels, and then aged a further 2 months after bottling. It is an appetizing, smooth, well-rounded and tasteful wine. Black currants flavors, well-balanced with a long finish. Enjoy this fine Cabernet Sauvignon with red meats, cheeses and pasta.
 
Accolades
93 Points, Wine & Spirits
"Concha y Toro offers three Upper Maipo cabernets, including this latest release from the warm and dry 2009 vintage. Marcelo Papa oversees the viticulture and winemaking for Marqués, grown at a vineyard on alluvial soils just east of Don Melchor’s vines. The wine is both tense and intense, the ripe flavors concentrated, almost explosive with blueberry and black cherry notes set off by a hint of menthol. It’s a big wine, even bigger than its neighbor Melchor, but with a more refined structure, built on a foundation of fine tannins that sustains the tension between fruit and texture. A wine to cellar for at least five years."
 
93 Points, Wine Spectator
"Dense, rich and full of dark fruit and spice flavors, supported by muscular tannins and acidity. The dried blackberry, black fig and smoke - infused cocoa powder notes feature some accents of dried meat. Best from 2015 to 2022."
 
90 Points, Wine Enthusiast

"Stands out for its fruit quality, balance and structure. The nose is strong and piercing with charred notes, black fruit aromas and depth. Ripe and clean in the mouth, with elevated blackberry flavors and a chewy, meaty mouthfeel. Toasty and tasting of black licorice on the finish. A serious, well-made Chilean Cab to drink now through 2012."
