Tasting notes
Bright, dark and deep red. The dark colour sets thetone 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.

Review
Publication: Wine Spectator Weekly Wine: Marques de Casa Concha 2001 Merlot Date: December 2003 Country: United States Review: 90 points. Top 100 wine of 2003 Comments: Smoky and ripe, with black currant and plum flavors, hints of herbs, cocoa and toast, and a fleshy, mouthfilling finish. Feels like it has the stuffing to cellar a bit too. This label is really strong these days. Drink now through 2005.

Technical notes
Variety: Merlot
Origin: Peumo Vineyard. Peumo, Rapel Valley.
Soil: The former terraces of the Cachapoal River are deep alluvial clay loam. The clays provide great water retention that contributes to good grape ripening.
Climate: Subhumid Mediterranean. Hot days give way to temeperate nights. The nearby Cachapoal River abates summer temperatures at night, which helps in the development of this variety`s softer tannins.
Harvest: Hand picked. April 26 - May 8, 2001.
Aging: 16 months in french oak barrels(33% in new & 67% in two year old barrels).

Food pairing
Enjoy with red and white meats, pasta, and cheese.
