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

The first whiff I got was the cassis or black currant. The cassis scent is predominant but after some work other aromatic notes are detectable. There is a hint of blackberry and a woody, smoky vanilla lingers from the eight-months this young wine spent in American Oak barrels. The flavor is a cassis-fest as well. The tartness of the cassis is overpowering. Yet subtle notes of dark roasted coffee and cherry come through and dance lightly on the taste-buds. After further tasting something takes me back to the waking hours of a backpacking trip through North Carolina - possibly the not-quite ripe blackberries I had for breakfast and the lingering odor of the still-smoldering camp fire. The finish is short - lingering for three seconds or so and disappearing with a breath of alcohol. This wine has an astringent quality owed to the tannins, making it a little more bitter and dry than I prefer. Overall I am not wowed by this Chilean Cab. The cassis comes on FAR too strong and prevents the drinker from enjoying the hints of coffee. MORE at http://redsfortherestofus.blogspot.com

Spicy peppers with an initial stench of sour fruit on the nose. Sour, black cherry on the swirl. Poorly balanced, almost brutish in its tannic structure with a short, barely perceptible finish. Cheap, massed produced wine. Avoid. There are infinitely superior wines in this price range (i.e. The Sabor Real Toro 2006 and La Mano Mencia Roble 2007 spring to mind.) 78.

It got higher recommendation than the Merlot from the same winery. However, I still prefer the Merlot over this exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon.

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.

Farbe: tiefes Rubinrot. Reiche Aromen nach roten Kirschen und Pflaumen, duftet nach Vanille und Eichenholz. Im Geschmack konzentriert und elegant, leichte Noten nach Schokolade und roten Beeren, würzig, leichte Röstaromen, vollmundig, komplex und gut ausgewogen, mit lang anhaltendem Abgang.
