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!
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Carménère Casillero del Diablo
Nice ripe raspberry and plum fruit, with sweet smoke, spice and dried herb notes. Chocolaty finish. Nicely done. Drink now.
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.
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.
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.
Nice supple texture, with a mix of plum, cocoa, tobacco and vanilla. The smoky finish gains flesh as it opens. Drink now.
Pretty plum and cassis fruit, with lush tannins and a round, smoky finish that lets the fruit linger nicely. Drink now.
Polished, with sweet vanilla toast guiding the plum, black cherry and tobacco notes. followed by a fleshy finish. Drink now.
