Concha y Toro 2009 Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon (Chile)
The night started with a pretty so-so kosher wine by Renatti (a Shiraz that tasted more like grape juice with booze in it), but ended with the delightful and always impressive Concha y Toro on the table. I am a fan of what comes out of this Chilean behemoth of a winery - even though they are large they have quality wines coming out the door, at least in the over $15 range. The Marques de Casa Concha Cab sits around the twenty dollar mark and delivers excellent value for the money. Lots of lovely dark fruit with a hint of mint and a chunk of bittersweet chocolate on the finish.
