Concha Y Toro Cabernet-Syrah Blend Casillero del Diablo 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromen nach roten Kirschen und Pflaumen, roten Beeren, Pfeffer und Gewürzen. Die Lagerung im Barriques verleiht ihm Aromen nach Vanille und Toast. Im Geschmack geschmeidig, elegant, gut strukturiert, gut ausgewogen mit feinen Tanninen.

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

A new addition to the Casillero line of great values, this Reserva Privada offers currant and black pepper scents over a firm texture; its tannins support the wine's refreshing fruit character.

A step up is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah Reserva Privada, a wine which spent 14 months in French oak. The nose reveals spice box, violets, plum, and black cherry. Spicy on the palate with pepper and earth notes, it also has enough tannin to improve for 1-2 years. The lengthy, pure finish suggests that this wine will drink well through 2017.

Dark, with a loamy undertow to the black currant, melted licorice and roasted coffee notes. Fleshy and pure through the finish. This has solid grip. Drink now through 2010.

Sweet and ripe in aromatics, with notes of maple and inky black fruit scents. The palate is rock-solid and thick, with a good texture, tannic grip and flavors of cassis, berry and leather. Composed and medium-long on the sturdy finish. A mix of 85% Cab and 15% Syrah.

Exuberant flavors of strawberries and blackberries meld with this wine's firm structure. The depth of the fruit demands full-flavored dishes. Try it with braised lamb.
