Concha Y Toro Cabernet-Syrah Blend Casillero del Diablo 2006
95 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2006 Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon is a glass-coating opaque purple with an alluring bouquet of toast, tobacco, cedar, leather, mocha, and blackcurrant. Sweet, voluptuous (but not in a fruit bomb kind of way), layered, and complex already, its superb balance will ensure at least a decade of evolution and it should drink well through 2036. (Apr 2009)
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Cabernet-Syrah Blend Casillero del Diablo
Noten von Cabernet Sauvignon kombiniert mit Syrah - dotiert frische schwarze Früchte (Johannisbeere und Pflaume) und Spuren von weissem Pfeffer und Gewürzen.
A dark, muscular style, with black currant, braised fig, maduro tobacco, bittersweet cocoa and loam notes that all roll together through the dense but polished finish. Theres impressive power for the vintage, along with precision and balance. Drink now through 2018. 20,000 cases made. -JM Inky ruby. Expansive, intensely perfumed bouquet of dark berries, cherry pit, candied licorice and sexy oak spices. Broad, gently chewy cassis and bitter cherry flavors reach every nook and cranny of the palate, picking up an exotic violet pastille quality on the back end. Gains power on the finish, which features strong anise, tobacco and lead pencil qualities. Serious and in need of cellaring.
