From Concha Y Toro, via Oddbins who were knocking it off at three for £20 a few weeks ago, encouraging me to snap up half a dozen. People talk about rubber flavours in Chilean wines, and for me this is extremely obvious here. But it’s not unpleasant – a deep, dark ruby colour, dense velvety texture and lots of spicy, blackberry flavours. It’s a good wine, definitely pleasurable to drink, but I don’t find it wildly exciting. It’s a good second wine to open up when you’ve got friends around one evening, but it’s not the brilliant opening gambit which will convince them you’re tremendously stylish and tasteful. Worth what I paid, but not the £9.99 standard price. Others though have been more enthusiastic, so maybe it’s just a root day.
