2005 Marques de Casa Concha Chilean Merlot Wine Review


This was the last bottle in local wine store in Newport Beach. Retail was $19.99 so thought we would take it to an Italian restaurant. First and foremost, let it breath. This one had been setting for a while and 20 mins open made a huge difference.

You can definitely taste the hint of chocolate and vanilla which are both extremely strong when first opened but balanced out well after breathing for about 20 minutes. From the Rapel Valley in Chile this limited production Merlot should have been a lot more.
Pass on this one of you see it.

TheXPRT wine review rating 82 out of 100.
