Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo:
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.

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

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.

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.

    This wine starts off with a good amount of wood, but then rounds out into a nicely ripe, well-balanced, fruity finish that is uncommon in any Cabernet Sauvignon at this price.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Opaque ruby. Cherry, blackcurrant and mulberry on the jammy nose. Chewy, slightly dry dark fruit and bitter cherry flavors are given bite by tangy acidity, with the smoky quality repeating. Finishes with firm grip, a slight dry edge, with the cherry note repeating.

    A mixture of 70% American oak-aged wine and the rest from steel tanks. Some friendly mint and Christmas spice aromas. Typical Chilean Cab flavors of chocolate, cherries and currants. Good for a mass-production wine.

    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.
