Casillero Diab Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Chile 2007
Color: Deep, intense ruby red. Aroma: Ripe fruit –cherry and black plum- and subtle toasted traces from wood aging. Palate: Mid-bodied, firm and smooth tannins. An elegant wine with a long, pleasant finish. Food Pairing: Red meats, spicy dishes and ripe cheeses such as Gruyere or blue cheese.
Forest floor, mossy, good sugars, low tannins, subtle aroma
This one is loaded with intense black fruit flavor, smooth, very well balanced tannins and a long grape finish. Nice wine for under $15 dollars per bottle
Bright fruit with a little sharpness on the nose, slight campfire smoke in the mouth with a lifting at the end. Not bad.
Outstanding wine. The red blend is excellent. Had it a palks on 6/28/13,get more at JnJs
Strong aroma of cherries with a subtle earthy undertone. Hints of cedar and citrus linger on the palate. Light bodied and refreshing, finishes with soft tannins. This wine was very drinkable, recommended for a casual occasion or a good movie.
Got me round Ecuador when I couldn't find better. Drinkable but not one to write home about.
Sometimes, if you drink wine on regular basis and there are several wine drinkers in the house, you need a wine like this. I get this wine by the case for about $5.49 a bottle. It presents everything one expects in a Cab. For the price it does very in consistency and can be bruised with mishandling. On the whole its a solid wine at an awesome price.
External Reviews for Casillero Diab Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Chile
With muscular tannins flanked by concentrated black fruit, this is untamed cabernet. A juicy steak would mellow its youthful energy.
Tar, leather and smoke, all qualities of serious Cabernet, make themselves noticed on the nose. The palate delivers black cherry, plum, cassis and all the usual suspects, while the mouthfeel is firm and solid. No complaints.
A dizzying amount of wine comes out of this Chilean behemoth, and a dizzying amount of it is very good. The Casillero series - named for the useful myth that a devil lives in the barrel cellars at the winery - is one of their midpriced offerings and it is a great value. The 2001 Cab shows bold, mocha and ceder aromatics coming out of the oak, with the underlying blackberry fruit bubbling up around it. Moderately rich on the palate, it's bold, spicy and muscular.
Wine Tasting NotesColor: Bright, dark plum.Nose: Appealing ripe cherries, blackcurrant and black plums with a touch of vanilla and toasted oak.Taste: Medium bodied with soft and friendly tannins. Hints of plums and cherries generously framed by toasted American oak.
Fresh and grapey, with a nice currant hint as well. Moderate tannins and a dash of cocoa on the finish. Drink now.
This wine starts off with loads of wood, but then rounds out into a nicely ripe, well-balanced, fruit-laden finish that is uncommon in any Cabernet at this price.
The cellar may be the Devil's but the wine is heavenly! It is smooth and elegant with good weight and flavor. Serve with steak and you will be on cloud nine!
