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

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!

This has a sappy, kirschlike feel, with ripe, dark fruit, well-integrated toast and a medium-weight, accessible and polished finish. Drink now.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Has some good Cabernet varietal character, with currant and bayleaf flavors and minty notes on the finish. Drink now.

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.
