Casillero del Diablo Malbec 13b-1 Chile 2008
On opening, aromas of strong coffee grounds and blueberries fill the nose, followed by hints of tar and dried hay. The palette is nicely broad, chewy and balanced, with coffee, cherry, blueberry and cocoa notes interweaving with sour citrus and spice to create evolving harmonies. Acidity supports supple fruit in the center and long tasty linger. Incredible, really, for such an inexpensive wine.
