Editorial Reviews for Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Casillero del Diablo
This blend of Cab and Syrah has a smoky, rich, slightly peppery and herbaceous nose that fills the glass. In the mouth the wine is well structured with the richness of the dark berried Cabernet fruit cut by the spice and brightness of the Syrah. The finish is much like the nose with smoky and peppery notes offering a nice counterpoint to the rich fruit. A lot of wine, perhaps a bit monolithic at this stage but certainly a hit for people looking for this style. 88pts

A very bold red. A little too bold for my wife, but it would be much better with food.
This is one of the worst wines I've ever tasted. It actually tasted like gasoline to me. UGH!
A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc from 20 year old vines from the vineyard Puente Alto which is in the highest, coolest region of the Maipo Valley. Wine Speculator gave this wine 96 points. $54 US. This wine This wine spends 14 months in French oak (60% new and 40% used) and an additional 12 months in bottle before release. This wine was very typical for a Cab and frankly I wasn't too impressed. It could have been made in California for all I know, I was just expecting a lot more individuality considering this was suppose to be one of the best Chilean reds on the market. Definitely a crowd pleaser for the Napa Cab crowd but lacking the pizazz and personality of truly great wines. Who knows maybe it was an off bottle... I just think its overrated. 2.5/5
good, but with powder flavour
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Casillero del Diablo
This sensational value has a range of flavors; structure and other important characteristics that some wines costing five times more can't match. The nose is full of plum, black fruit and coffee, while the palate is pure dynamite; it's a textbook modern Cabernet that hits the target squarely in the center.
Very solid, with ripe cassis, blackberry and boysenberry fruit offset by vanilla, mineral and cocoa notes. Shows a loamy undertow, but stays fresh and focused through the finish. This has a great track record of value. Drink now through 2007.
Concentrated, with a solid core of black currant, fig and hoisin sauce notes, all layered with alluring bittersweet cocoa, espresso and roasted vanilla, followed by a long, fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2010.
Very solid beam of raspberry and black currant fruit here, caressed by sweet toast, cocoa and smoke notes. Hints of loam and tar on the finish, which is juicy and ripe. Delicious and should age nicely in the short-term as well. Drink now through 2005.
From El Tocornal, on the north bank of the Maipo river, this latest release of Don Melchor is still too young to completely reveal its character. Menthol and black cherry aromas dominate the wine. The palate, severe and tight, speaks of strength and musculature rather than Melchor's usual gentleness. Decant it now for game, or save a bottle for the next five to six years.
Dark red. Strong, varietally accurate aromas of bitter cherry, blackcurrant, dark chocolate and fresh tobacco. Lush and creamy yet juicy, with ripe cherry and mocha flavors. Sweet berry fruit flavors are wrapped in suave, silky tannins.
Think of this as Napa meets Chile. Copious amounts of new American oak provides a velvety cushion for the lush cassis, ripe blackberry and juicy currants. In addition to its plush mouthfeel, there are subtle notes of fresh pipe tobacco and enticing aromas of roasted coconut and mocha on the nose. Always a consistent value.
Appellation Central Valley. Vintage 2005. Soil Riverbench, benchland and hillside associated soils. Aging 70% aged in small American oak barrels and 30% in stainless steel tanks during 6 to 8 months. Colour Deep and intense red ruby. Nose Blackcurrant, black cherry and black plums notes; vanilla, mocha, toasted coffee and chocolate nuances from barrel aging. Taste It is a smooth yet intense concentrated wine, dense, vibrant. Elegant, long and pleasant lingering. Accompanies A great choice to match with red meats, herby dishes or mature cheeses such as Gruyere or blue cheese.
