Casillero del Diablo Merlot 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Intense red purple. Aroma: Excellent typical Merlot where we find above all notes of cherries accompanied by licorice, complemented by subtle touches of vanilla and toffee given by the American barrels. Taste: Silky and friendly from the beginning with elegant and balanced finish. The body is medium and the fresh black fruit makes this wine very balanced and pleasant. Food Pairing: Italian cuisine not spicy and rich in tomato sauces. White meat garnished with creamy sauces and/or soft cheeses.

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

Long on fruit and fine on the palate, the Concha y Toro Casillero del Diablo Merlot delivers more than the usual state of Merlot affairs; enjoy with a brisket of beef.

Bright dark and deep purple. Subtle aromas of chocolate, dark plums, red berries and spices, with hints of vanilla and smokeMedium-bodied, with lovely tannins, velvety texture, rich and a long, pretty finish.

Hard spice, juniper and minty aromas meld with chocolate and blackberry scents. This is chewy and full on the palate, with spicy, minty blackberry and black currant flavors that finish thick, with a woodsy, lightly green aftertaste.

Red plum and dried berry flavors are direct and fresh-tasting in this juicy red. The spicy notes include cardamom and vanilla, which linger on the finish. Drink now. 499,000 cases made.
