COLOUR: Deep cherry-red. AROMA: Dark fruit expression, such as cherry, blackberry and morello cherries that meld with notes of chocolate and tobacco. PALATE: Firm and delicate palate, with soft and silky tannins. Good density, concentration and amplitude. Persistent finish.
Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2008 Gravas del Maipo is a blend of 91% Syrah and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon that is aged for 17 months in French oak (70% new and 30% one-year old.) It has a well-defined bouquet with black currant, raspberry and a touch of crushed violet that exhibits fine lift. The palate is crisp and focused with pepper tinged dark berry fruit, black olives and a touch of truffle, although the finish does not demonstrate the precision and focus I would expect given the price. Drink now-2018. (Dec 2012)

Gravas del Maipo is born as a tribute by Concha y Toro to the majestic Andes and the hidden gravel from silently eroded, displaced and molded soils year after year in the thousands of years old Maipo basin. It reflects the challenge of positioning Chile as a high-quality wine producer, together with the constant and passionate search for identifying those terroirs that faithfully express the character of a grape variety.
