Concha y Toro 2009 Gran Reserva Series Riberas Cabernet Sauvignon (Chile)

14 Apr 2019


CyT 2009 Riberas Cab Sauv(February 2, 2019) ... It starts off minty on the nose then develops lots of woody character ... The tannins are of the wood variety and quite aggressive. Around the 2 hour mark things start to change for the better: cassis and pencil shavings begin to show up, but the wood character sticks around adding a little spice to the mix.  The finish is bitter with notes of cocoa, earth and oak. This one's not at its best, but at least the mint is constant.
