Food Pairings for Concha Y Toro Carménère Casillero del Diablo
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!
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Carménère Casillero del Diablo
Nice supple texture, with a mix of plum, cocoa, tobacco and vanilla. The smoky finish gains flesh as it opens. Drink now.
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.
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.
A modestly structured version, with cocoa powder, currant paste, briar and tobacco notes backed by nice grip on the finish. What a value. Drink now through 2009.
A plump, round, mostly welcoming bouquet sets you up for full cherry, strawberry, plum and sucking candy flavors. Feels good across the palate and finishes sturdy, with a touch of overt vanilla oak. Like always, this represents everyday Carmenere in fine form.
Concha y Toro is getting Carmenere right. This affordable red is full bodied, with a fair amount of oak and bacon smothering plum and berry aromas. On the whole it's round, juicy and fresh, with lively flavors and good feel.
Nice ripe raspberry and plum fruit, with sweet smoke, spice and dried herb notes. Chocolaty finish. Nicely done. Drink now.
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.
