Food Pairings for Concha Y Toro Carménère Casillero del Diablo
Appearance: Bright Colour: Dark and deep red with violet nuances. Nose: Very elegant, complex, strong character of Carmenere, red ripe fruit, spicy with hints of tobacco. Palate: Great structure, mouth-filling, sour chocolate, sweet tannins, powerful and concentrated. Dense, oily with lots of fruit giving a long finish. Variety: 85% Carmenere, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc. Origin: Block 27, Peumo Vineyard (Carmenere) Peumo, Rapel Valley. Soil: River bench associated soils, deep alluvial clay loam. The clays provide great water retention that contributes to good grape ripening. The retention characteristics are perfect for controlling plant growth. Climate: Subhumid mediterranean. Hot days give way to cold nights. The influence of the Cachapoal river reduces nocturnal summer temperatures, which slows the ripening of the grapes. Aging: Aged in French oak barrels for 17 months (90% in new barrels, 10% in one year old barrels). Harvest: Hand picked. April 20-May 4, 2004.
