Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Casillero del Diablo 2009
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.
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
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.
This has a sappy, kirschlike feel, with ripe, dark fruit, well-integrated toast and a medium-weight, accessible and polished finish. Drink now.
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!
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.
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.
