Marques de Casa Concha Merlot 2017

Deep, dark, and bright red with aromas of blackcurrants, wild berries, plums, and spices with a nice touch of vanilla, mocha, and oak that lend complexity. Fresh and captivating on the palate with velvety soft tannins that complement the tremendously fruity expression well into the long and lingering finish.

A powerful Merlot, this is unbridled in its youthful energy, filled with a slightly coarse prickle of firm tannins. There’s plenty of ripe red fruit underneath.
