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
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.
Nice, simple cabernet. A little fruity, a little smoky. nothing special, but nice with red meat.
External Reviews for Casillero Diab Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Chile
This has a sappy, kirschlike feel, with ripe, dark fruit, well-integrated toast and a medium-weight, accessible and polished finish. Drink now.
A juicy Casillero, this is lushly textured, the strawberry scents surrounded by black pepper and coffee. The tannins are firm and soft, the finish spicy and slightly smoky. And yes, it costs only ten bucks.
Deep-toned, baked black cherry and nutmeg scents ride over the darker tropical chocolate astringency of the tannins. This full, ripe wine needs another six months to a year to mollify its tannins.
For a huge-volume wine, it's what we'd expect. Controlled oak results in aromas of coffee, vanilla, marshmallow and resin in addition to cassis and cherry, while the palate offers generic fruit flavors as well as vanilla and herbal notes. A bit puckery and scratchy, but keep in mind that annual production tops 1.3 million cases.
This sprightly white leads with fresh apricot flavors spritzed with citrus. It has an off-dry style that would serve a peach crêpe.With muscular tannins flanked by concentrated black fruit, this is untamed cabernet. A juicy steak would mellow its youthful energy. Best Buy.
Comfortable enough, with common aromas of black fruit, spice, earth and leather. Given that production on this wine is now a whopping million cases, anything palatable should be considered a success. Casillero has reasonably good plum, cassis and brambly flavors, with a hint of oak in support. The mouthfeel is narrow, but overall the wine tastes real.
Focused and forward, offering a velvety edge to the medium-weight mint, currant and black cherry fruit, with a lightly toasted finish. Drink now.
