Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Deep red with lush cherry, black currant, and blackberry aromas with a touch of tar and smoke. The highly concentrated flavors are framed by firm tannins. The texture is smooth—almost silky—and masks the firm tannic structure that lies below and only appears on the lingering finish.

General description

Variety / Style

  • 91% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 5% Syrah
  • 4% Cabernet Franc

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

  • Puente Alto Vineyard and Pirque Vineyard, D.O Maipo, Maipo Valley.

Vineyard

Both vineyards are located close to the foothills of the Andes Mountains –Puente Alto 650 msnm and Pirque 570 msnm-, and have alluvial soils that are poor in nutrients, rocky, and highly permeable due to the abundance of gravel in the subsoil.

Soil

Associated with fluvial terraces. Alluvial, rocky, poor in nutrients, and highly permeable due to the abundance of gravel in the subsoil.

Climate

Semi-arid Mediterranean with a strong influence of the Andes Mountains. This is the coldest part of the Maipo Valley and has a pronounced difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures (approximately 18oC). An extended ripening period concentrated and intensifies the aromas in the grapes.

AGING

16 months in French oak barrels, and in 5,000-liter foudre.

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. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

The cool 2011 season isn’t apparent in this cabernet. Instead, it tastes of sweet fruit, with ripe flavors of figs and plums building through the finish. The texture is soft, with a thick velvet nap.
