Marques de Casa Concha 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

Concha Y Toro Cabernet
Chilie's largest wine house, Concha y Toro, puts this one out. Hold on to your socks, because this is one strong, dry cab. I didn't like it on the first sip, but it quickly grows on you.

The strong currant flavors grab you quick, and licorice and coffee flavors make this wine quite unique. Dark, ripe blackberries also stand out.

There is a lot going on for the $15 price tag, but again, it's very unique and strong. You'll want a hearty meal with this one, but I did enjoy the change from your typical cab. 6/10 rating.
