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.

Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo:

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.

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

Intense and somewhat extracted smelling with deep black currant and jellied black fruit aromas topped with peppery hints of oak spice and tobacco. This enters the mouth with surprising softness, the lowish acidity lends volume to this on the palate but robs it of some of its liveliness. The flavors are deep and fairly intense with earth, tobacco and cocoa streaks running through the intense black currant fruit. The wood pops on the backend with nuanced caramel notes, adding further complexity on the moderately long and drying finish. A lot of wine but a bit heavy and clumsy for my palate. 86pts

We paired this wine with a slow cooked beef burgundy dish. It was light and a little too fruity for a savory beef dish. Kind of acidic too. On its own, it is an interesting full wine.

Very similar to their Carmenere, but sweeter. Had that sweet cherry and thinness typical of shiraz. Very drinkable.

Stout and compact out of the blocks, with ripe cassis and berry aromas and only a pinch of herbal spiciness. It's creamy, big and warm in the mouth, with a ton of mocha, chocolate, cassis and blackberry. Intense and dark late, with a coconut sweetness to the finish. M.S. Dark plum, fig and blackberry fruit is nicely integrated with roasted coffee and vanilla notes. Solid, fleshy finish. Drink now. 40,500 cases made. -JM
