External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Cabernet-Syrah Blend Casillero del Diablo
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.
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.
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.
