Concha Y Toro Carménère Casillero del Diablo 2008
Wine Tasting Notes Dark and deep crimson red. Luscious fruit flavors: Dark plums and chocolate with hints of coffee and toasty American oak. Notes of dark plums and spice, generously framed by toasty American oak with a soft and well structured mouthfilling texture. Enjoy Casillero del Diablo Carmenere with meats, ripe cheese and pasta.
Deep purple color. Red Fruit, Plum, pete and smoke on the nose. Medium to full bodied taste with tones of smoky oak. Paired up with tacos the hot sauce brought out peppery spicy finish.
Not bad, but the 2005 is much better.
Light with some cherries
A delightful change of pace. I love the history of the Carmenere grape. It's seeming extinction and sudden reappearance on the world's wine stage. Give this wine a chance. Remember they are only a few years in; I'm certain they will do great things. I'm pairing with a camembert en croute. The rich berry flavours are classic.
Fruity, medium bodied, a hint of acidity. Very satisfying with food. I'll try some aged bleu cheese with the next bottle. I expect a good match.
it tasted like cinnamon!
Three and a half glasses

Auge: dunkles, tiefes Rot; Nase: reife und intensive Aromen nach Kirschen und Brombeeren; Gaumen: feine Struktur mit weichen Tanninen und fruchtig, komplex
A very ripe and ready style of Carmenère. The big berry aromas mixed with spice and herbs are just what you need to get into the juicy, forward palate of plum and blackberry. Round in the mouth, not tannic, yet still a force to reckon with. For $10 this is a lot of wine.
The 2007 Carmenere is an excellent introduction to this grape. Pleasant, ripe, and forward, it has plenty of blueberry and black raspberry flavors for casual quaffing over the next 2-3 years.
Polished, with sweet vanilla toast guiding the plum, black cherry and tobacco notes. followed by a fleshy finish. Drink now.
Shows the grape's characteristic pepper and plum profile, with a fleshy mouthfeel and smoky finish. A nice introduction to Carmenère at the right price. Drink now.
Concha y Toro produces a wide range of wines, and all of them are great! This Carmenere has dark, plummy fruit flavors enhanced by notes of mocha, oak, and spices.
Nice ripe raspberry and plum fruit, with sweet smoke, spice and dried herb notes. Chocolaty finish. Nicely done. Drink now.
