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