Concha Y Toro Cabernet-Syrah Blend Casillero del Diablo 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep and luxurious; intense and brilliant ruby-red. Blackcurrant, red cherry and plum notes from Cabernet Sauvignon combine with Syrah-endowed ripe black fruit, blackberry and plum. Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada is an assemblage elaborated mainly from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes selected from Pirque vineyards, place of origin of Casillero del Diablo in the Maipo Valley, and a contribution of Syrah grapes. These varieties blend in an exclusive product, boosting each of its qualities in a perfect mixture of fruit, power and delicacy.

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

Ripe, with a tasty core of blackberry, fig and boysenberry fruit, laced with mocha and melted licorice notes, followed by a fleshy finish. Drink now.

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.

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.

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.

Deep ruby. Cherry-vanilla, cassis and mint on the nose. Deep dark fruit flavors are complicated by succulent herbs and a slow-building licorice quality. Oak spices creep up on the finish but the fruit maintains the upper hand. I'd drink this now, for the lush fruit.

Inky ruby. Brooding cherry and cassis on the nose, with hints of pepper and spice trying to struggle through. Subdued but alluringly sweet dark berry flavors are kissed by vanillin oak. Offers good sweetness but seems a bit stunted right now. The finish shows bitter cherry and dark chocolate character and lingers nicely.
