Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Central Valley Casillero del Diablo 2011
Color: Beautiful and lively ruby red colour with brilliant hues. Aroma: The expression of cassis in this wine perfectly represents the Valle Central and its richness in fruit such as cherries and plums. The barrel ageing length thanks to the toast and coffee notes. Taste: Initially it shows its structure due to the strong tannins that ends elegant and juicy. The fruit flavours are confirmed by the long and elegant after taste which is balanced in the barreling process. Food Pairing: Red meat, lamb ribs and stews with good presence of spices.
The 2011 has nice deep color and minty nose but falls apart on the palette. Simple and light bodied with a short finish. My rating -- 79
A nice red with a medium body. Great value for the price. It has some nice tannins, but nothing overly complex, making it extremely drinkable for both wine novices and those more experienced.
Good example of nice balanced (supermarket) wine. Not overdone, not complex.
Tastes diluted, very watery. Maybe I just prefer a drier red. Either way, the flavor is decent and it's definitely overpowered by the watery consistency.
