Casillero del Diablo Carmenére Aktionspaket 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Deep red. Unctuous cherry, cassis, cedar, blackberry, black tar and smoke-led presence. Tight and focused with a deep concentration of flavours framed by firm tannins. A smooth, almost silky texture masks the firm tannic structure beneath, which really comes to the fore at the beginning of the long finish." --Winemaker's notes

Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo:

Casillero del Diablo is a label produced by Concha y Toro Winery in Maipo Valley, Chile. Legend has it that in the early 1890s, winery founder Don Melchor went to his cellar to discover several of his best wines had gone missing. Hoping to ward off more thieves, he spread the rumor that this must have happened because a devil lived in his cellar, hence the name, which translates to “the devil’s cellar.” The first wines branded Casillero del Diablo were produced by Concha y Toro in 1953 and became an international success by the 1960s. The devil icon became a part of the packaging starting in the 1990s. The portfolio is now under the direction of winemaker Marcelo Papa. The wines are available in many styles and varietals of dry reds and whites, plus rosés and sparkling wines. Many of these considered terrific values for their pricepoints.  Read less

Stevige en volle smaak, veel rood fruit (bessen, framboos. Afdronk iets houtigs (eiken ?). Zou goed passen bij stoofschotels en rood vlees. Kan ook gecombineerd worden met gekruid eten. Associatie is vooral met de stevige Italiaanse vrienden zoals de Vino Nobile di Montepulciano maar dat is misschien iets te veel eer.

    A nice wine for an nice but common dinner with some friends. Strong nice red color. Normal viscosity. I sensed nice blackberry, plum and some spicy kind of pepperish notes. Though intense not very complex to the nose. In mouth is dry, hot and with the right softness. I find it bodied but lacking some "hardness" like freshness and tannins.

    Glass-staining ruby. Powerful aromas of red and dark berries, incense and fresh rose. Fleshy, gently sweet black raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors stain the palate and become firmer with air, gaining a zesty anise quality. Finishes with a strong echo of dark berries and persistent spiciness. Irsquo;d resist the temptation to open this for another few years.

    Once upon a time this Concha y Toro label was a Best Buy regular. At $21 it no longer qualifies, but itrsquo;s every bit an excellent wine in 2006. Aromas of plum, cola, pepper and Christmas spice are alluring, while the palate is saturated yet balanced. Flavors of plum and berry are perfectly ripe, and the structure and texture are just right.

    Lovely cassis and plum flavors, with hints of vanilla bean and herbs, and a fleshy yet elegant, smoky finish. Very nice. Concha y Toro is really rolling these days. Terrific quality-price ratio. Drink now through 2003.

    Rich and stylish on one hand, and brawny and bold on the other. This saturated, meaty bruiser starts with dark plum, cassis and eucalyptus aromas. Then comes a parade of chewy, high-powered fruit flavors: currant, cherry and blackberry. Casual back notes of chocolate and caramel cement this generous offering.

    Fleshy and ripe, with plum and black currant fruit offset by nice cocoa powder and mineral notes. Hint of loam as well. Drink now through 2006.

    This wine is made from grapes grown in prime Peumo vineyards in the Rapel Valley. It has been aged in French oak barrels for 14 months. The plum and cherry fruit flavors are balanced and supported by the oak. It is full-bodied with a smooth finish. Enjoy this delicious Merlot with broiled steak or lamb chops.

    From the Peumo vineyards in Chile's Rapel Valley, this limited production Merlot has been barrel-aged in French oak for fourteen months. Its intense plum and cherry aromas and flavors evoke the Peumo terrior; the wood adds generous hints of chocolate and vanilla.
