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!

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.

Shows nice black currant and fig notes, with a soft layer of loam underneath. A juicy hint on the finish keeps it going. 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.

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.

Dark in the glass, with dense fruitcake aromas along with notes of molasses and dried cherry. The palate is round and big, and the finish deals a heavy blast of grilled beef and coffee. Almost at the next level, but still a little awkward and bulky.

Fresh and grapey, with a nice currant hint as well. Moderate tannins and a dash of cocoa on the finish. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
