Concha y Toro Trio Reserva 2009 (Maipo Valley)

Tasted 20/11/11. 14% ABV, about £12 UK retail (e.g. Slurp). This is CyT's premium blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz. This vintage has just been released in the UK. Crimson colour. Fantastic aroma of blackcurrant, plums and white pepper. The palate is complex, juicy black fruits, allspice, cherries and coffee. I am not sure how long this wine is made to last, but it is certainly lovely now. Elegant and velvety tannins. A great food wine and excellent value for money. 16.5 / 20
