RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Food Pairings for Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Casillero del Diablo
At $6.50 for the 1.5 liter bottle, this is amazingly good plonk! Mild nose, plummy start and middle, mostly one well-balanced note, good tannins on the finish. It paired very nicely with tonite's panchetta-based spaghetti alla Carbonara. I dare say it would complement a good pizza as well as any wine out there. I left ~750 ml in the decanter, looking forward to tomorrow's tasting!
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Casillero del Diablo
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.
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!
Here's proof that Chile and Cabernet go together like birds of a feather. The wine is full of black cherry and cassis flavors, and the mouthfeel is exceedingly fresh and proper. And the vanilla and chocolate-covered espresso beans on the finish are a classy ending touch.
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.
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.
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.
It is the most famous variety of Casillero del Diablo. Its 2005 Vintage was awarded by Decanter as the best of the planet. It owns an intense cherry and plum bouquet, with vanilla and toast finishes. Is one of the red varieties with full wine in mouth, elegant and ideal to match beef in pepper sauce.
